Review by Tim Harris
8 of us met after a ring round to do this short paddle (Andy, Paul, Mat, Adam, Darren, Jane, Sarah, and me Tim).
We all met up at Newton Road after loading up Mats van with all the gear in Sutton park done the ferry to the Perry Barr then slid on to the water waved go bye to local horses who came to see us off!
With the morning sun shining we set off at a nice gentle pace as it was the first river trip for two members of the party (Jane and Adam).after the minor incident with Jane and a small boulder in her path the trip turned into a football collecting fest! (a grand total of seven I think).
Everyone stayed dry apart us being splashed by Sarah when she decided to throw her toys out of the canoe! ……one of the footballs we picked up on the way.
All in all a nice pleasant paddle was had by all.
