I had several things in mind when I left to go to the Paddler's Retreat this year. First was to meet friends I'd made previously and whom I get to visit with so seldom. Second was to again work on my paddling skills, especially in my new SOF boat. The last was to film. I wanted to take some video footage which would celebrate what traditional paddling brings to people's lives, especially how it works to enhance their life experience. I especially wanted to make a film which I can share with Canadian Inuit living in northern Canada. I want people there to also feel and experience what those who go to Delmarva feel and experience.
Over the next little while I will work to edit the raw video footage I now have. I'm really excited with much of it, especially an interview with an elequent Greenlander which I filmed on the last day. I'll be posting exerpts when they're ready!
