L/S down river with canoes paddling towards camera, one going at speed under a bridge. The water is almost like a mirror. The thin muscular men are then seen lugging their canoes up onto the
    bank, followed by canoeists hauling and carrying their canoes overland, through the woods. They relaunch, watched by crowds on the bank, and from boathouses.
