Kayaking is a great way of getting away from it all, I found nothing more chilling than being out on the water where no one can interrupt your batteries being recharged. The above photo was taken when I was kayaking some of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The Forth and Clyde canal is 35 mile long 56km. It runs from Grangemouth to Bowling near Dumbarton in Scotland. part of it is a less than a ten minute drive from where I stay, so I was a regular visitor as it is a nice easy paddle on a calm day. As you can probably gather I never used to do all 35 miles, I just did a few miles maybe up 6. 3 out and 3 back but you dont have to do much distance at all to get enjoyment out it.
