If you want a boat that will never tip over buy one like these tied up on the Danube by Paks, Hungary. These old fashioned planing hull boats skim on top of the water and are suitable for shallow water. They are still popular in Hungary and used by fishermen. Not only are they charming but also very practical and easy to build.
There is an old saying: If you drink the water of the Danube your heart will yearn to go back there. I don't know about that but the river sure captivates people's hearts.
Growing up close to the river I have seen many faces of it from high water to low levels. This is Europe's largest river running between the Black Forrest and the Black Sea. I took this photo in Dunaszekcso, South Hungary from the top of the Varhegy Hill on a day of high water.
This is a tribute to my dear friend Paul Straat who told me about this amazing place. It is a First Nations historical site and a sacred place not only to the First nations People but also my self. The hoodoos are as endless as the waves in the ocean. They guard years of spiritual ceremonies. They keep polishing and shaping with every breeze and every gust of wind. They are a proof of the slow and steady invisible force. They are an aspiration to us in tenacity and persistence.
