Last week we went canoeing with the young adults from church....and it was an interesting experience. If you've followed my blog for any amount of time you may have read that I am really afraid of water so I was a bit nervous going into a mini boat that rocks and wobbles.
And you know what? Canoeing is A LOT harder than I thought it would be and after 3 hours of "figuring it out" I was ready to be done.
The reason I say every couple should go canoeing is it's another one of those activities that needs team work. Boy, oh boy.....if the people in the front are not rowing....you go nowhere. If the person in the back is not steering (correctly) you go into the "open sea" as we called it or get suck under the brush.....our canoe was called the "Bush Canoe". ☺ *Ahem* We had discussions....telling each other what we should do to make it work. Everyone in our boat either has never been canoeing or only a few time....and not on a river. Currents, hard wind and rain did not make this trip any easier.
Don't think we'll be canoeing anytime soon.... I think next we should tackle Tandem riding! What do you think?
PS: All pictures (except the last) were taken by a photographer friend of ours. As we were rowing he rode along the river taking pictures. Thank you H. !
