With the Current

You walk beside the canal in the direction of the current – gradually bending to the north. After walking for several miles, the canal leads you to an inlet. At the water’s edge you find a small oar boat anchored to the shore by a rope tied around a sapling. The boat looks sturdy but well used. You wonder if the owner will be back any time soon, or whether they’d mind if you borrowed their vessel.
