Actors on TV make canoeing look so hard to do. They strain and grunt, with muscles ripling and heavy sweat glistening off of their bodies. Canoeing is actually much easier than it looks. The water supports the weight of the canoe and anyone in it, and it is easy to make the canoe move with the oars. Considering the extreme heat of the day, and the fact that the canoes were made of all metal, it was cool. The temperature on the middle of the lake was cooler than the land, where several of us had the beginning of heat headaches. I hope the actual canoe trip down the creek is just as easy.
