My Recent Adventure...

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

I recently stepped outside of my comfort zone.

My husband said he wanted to go white water rafting. I am too much of a scaredy cat for that, so we went tubing and kayaking in West Virginia instead.

We had a ball.

I had never been kayaking before. I had other opportunities to do it in the past, but I found a million and one reasons why I couldn't do it--first and foremost was my concern that I wouldn't fit in the kayak! LOL!

I am pleased to report I fit just fine in the kayak and truth be tolf I did a great job paddling on my first venture out. We had to paddle against the current, so we got a good work-out too.

The last time I went tubing was over 20 years ago! What a relaxing way to while away a hot summer day...

Have you had any recent adventures? I'd love to hear about them!

    Both tubing and kayaking are on my list of things I'd like to do again!

    No recent adventures because my husband's been working OT - which is a good thing. Eventually we'll take our vacation -and there will be adventure then, for sure!

    My most recent adventure was on July 5th a trip to the DC Zoo and it was the hottest day you can imagine and even the animals were smart enought to stay indoors in in the shade hidden from sight !!! But I kept telling myself at least I'm getting a work out !!!

    Your adventure sounds much more enjoyable !!!
