How others felt about the trip:

Thank you Terry and Chris for organizing a fabulous adventure.
Spending time in nature provides so many benefits for the body, mind and spirit.

Driftwood Paddle provided the opportunity to challenge our physical and mental capabilities and Nature Presence covered the wellness awareness both leading up to and during the trip.

I felt safe and well supported on this trip.

Can't wait for the next adventure!

Loved the experience! 

An experience all able-bodied folks would benefit from.

  • Nice drawing! I’m working on my physical well-being, but pine for more time to focus on the creative. Unfortunately, my physical status changed today as my hip flexors completely seized. I’ll have to incorporate more stretching before and after workouts. Cheers!

  • I am really happy with my wellness activities. Late yesterday afternoon I went for a 2 hour kayak paddle on the Holland River with Janis. Paddling on quiet and still water as the sun was setting was both a great physical and spiritual experience. Last week I cycled for three days in row…increasing the distance from 10 km to 20 km to just over 30 km. Added to that that week i- 1 in-person yoga class and 2 gym visits for strength training. Life is good!
