IT’S deceptively quiet in the wetlands. Just the birds and the sound of our oars slipping in and out of the shallow, muddy water. Ghostly trees – swamp paperbarks I later discover – guard the sides of the narrow channel. A pelican loiters on one bony branch as we pass by. A white-faced heron flickers overhead. We glide on.
