Today was my first kayaking trip of the summer and it was exactly what I needed. The past several months (yeah I said months) have been torture because I drive over the river every day and the weather has been so nice that it often made me wish I was out on it. So today was a day long anticipated!
There was lots to see and much excitement on the river today!! I went out with my good friend Joy who is actually the owner of the kayaks and her friend Teri; we had a blast.
Joy and I went through our favorite rapid twice; which required us to carry our kayaks back up the river for the second run.
We encounter a few rafts tied together full of about 30+ girls thoroughly enjoying their topless trip down the river (sorry no pictures of this experience!)
We saw lots and lots of baby ducks and geese.
(be sure to click on these so you can fully see the babies)
We saw a few people releasing a duck back into the wild after raising it from a baby.
I saw a few turtles
I got stuck on a rock which ended in my flipping my kayak, scraping my leg from knee to hip, and a rather extended float in freezing cold water.
And of course the usual affair of kumarans, egrets and herring!
