Canoe Be My Friend?

Canoe Be My Friend?

Remember back to the days at summer camp filled with s’mores and ghost stories around a campfire? For those of you who received a coveted canoeing merit badge as a kid, canoes seem like a bit of a forgotten mode of water transportation in our current world of stand-up paddle boards and flyboards.
