One of my fondest memories was during the times in the summer that my family would visit my Aunt Merilee and Uncle Sandy's place out in Aldergrove, BC. They had a large property, including a pond. I was probably 6 years old at the time here, but it was my first time ever canoeing. As I couldn't swim then, I was always a bit nervous around water. I did eventually learn to swim when I was 10, but it wasn't until I was 17 that I had the chance to canoe again!
