Welcome “Simply Canoe” my new canoe and outdoors blog-site, where I will endeavour to share with youfrost2013023 my and my family canoe and outdoors stories and adventures. 

I do hope you will find some enjoyment and maybe a little inspiration. I am not trying to create another resource site, as there are many numerous ones already on the net to gain knowledge from! No, this is intended to be a more relaxed, feel-good site where I will share things and ideas that we use or techniques we employ, but by no means a practised professional, I will show only what works for us! 

There are also numerous activities the the canoe, certainly from my point of view, has become an integral part of; nature-watching, Bushcraft, Camping, Fishing, to name but a few, and I hope to share some experiences with you!
