Otherness - 45 Days on the Isle of Beauty

In the summer of 2012, Dave Wise spent six weeks camped in the Medway Estuary, on Darnet Island.  Maybe you saw him as he paddled past, exploring the inner and outer estuary and foraging for food.  Maybe you met him on one of the guided Medway Canoe Trails he ran last year.

He's crafted a book and made a film about this most unusual canoe expedition, right in our back yard, illustrated with hand-drawn maps and images taken with a pinhole camera Dave made from driftwood.  It looks like an extraordinary tale.

See Dave's website here for more information, to order the book and to see the film.  It's well worth a look.
