What are you looking for?

    When I head out, usually by myself, I'm looking for something. It's that something that governs my whole approach to what I do. It's what
    makes it the pleasurable experience that I'm looking for and
    desire most. So what exactly are you looking for
    when you pick up pack and paddle?

    Maybe it's the warmth of a campfire...

    A fire crackled in the corner of the campsite, projecting long shadows on the surrounding area. The light cast by the flames danced across the dark
    trunks of the trees, twisting and curing in obscure shapes and
    providing a small radius off light. The fire itself was
    pulsating; the glowing embers seemed to move in
    rhythm with the flames, matching every dip and
    sweep. It was mesmerizing to watch, colours
    of orange and red gave way to yellow and
    white near the centre, where the
    emanating heat was the


    The dazzling sunset...
    It was sunset. I watched with an unwavering gaze, as a fiery red orb of light slowly sank beneath the horizon, and threads of light lingered in the sky, mingling with the rolling clouds, dyeing the heavens first orange,
    then red, then dark blue, until all that was left of the sunset
    was chalky mauve, and then that melted away in turn as
    darkness took over the sky. Sequin-silver stars like the
    glowing embers of a dying fire winked down at me,
    illuminating the tremendous curtain of sky and
    then suddenly the clouds parted, and I
    found myself looking at a lustrous,
    argent disc casting brilliant rays
    of moonlight onto
    the dark ground.


    So...exactly, what are you looking for?

    All of the above plus, I love sunrises. Especially when there is brilliant colors in the sky. Mist on the flat calm water is also treat.
