Cedar Canoe Blog
As most of you know, Current Reading is hosted, free, by WordPress, (hence the ads). Another blog with a paddling theme you might find interesting comes out of the adventures of a couple from the Netherlands. As you probably gathered, a beautiful cedar-strip canoe is central to their excursions, many of which take place in America. Find their site, here: https://thecedarjournal.com/
