Well, when this challenge came up, I thought that everyone would submit some type of picture, or a dirt road, somewhere.
However, the Rivers were the original roads, used to explore, move goods, Travel. now these days, this form of majjor transportation has gone, and the Rivers are now less Travelled.

Photo is taken of the Yarra River, Melbourne Australia. The old Row Boats at the Boat Sheds, at the bend of our great, brown River.

Good idea, lineup of canoes visually interesting (although people on left somewhat distracting. When composing the image I would have exposed for the bright sky to preserve blue and lifted the exposure of the dark areas. Also, I was not there, so this may not have been possible. Take comment accordingly!

Nice take on the theme.

Maybe the colours could do with a bit of a boost?

a bit too centered

I like the less-obvious idea, but the muted colors and crowded composition are hurting the photo's impact.
