A couple of weeks before my move to Florida my family and I took a day trip down the Au Sable River. It was my first time kayaking in years, 15 yrs to be exact. I was a bit nervous at first but with a few helpful nudges from my best friend Jessica I embraced the fear and after a few scary moments of playing the balancing game with the quickly moving river, I started to get the hang of it.
There were a few hiccups on our journey but we laughed through them and made some pretty amazing memories. Below are a few pics I was able to snap with an underwater camera. You'll notice about half way down that we are all sportin ridiculously awesome ponchos, that is because not even 20min into our 5hr journey it began to pour. Luckily my parents are always prepared, the ponchos kept parts of us dry...well dryer than we would have been :) That was just one of the stories we had to laugh at and take with us at the end of the day.
I'm excited for our trip down the river next year!
