We owned a canoe for years and I used it when needed to. We also had rental kayaks that I used a few times, I never had a peaceful, calm, energizing time in either but prefer to have a motor or sail on my boat.

We took a white water rafting trip with the 5 kids many years ago and had tons of fun. It is far too active for me to do that now.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

Winter: Arizona (as of Dec. '08)

Personal goal is to weigh in 159 by the end of March 2017. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THE GOAL OF REACHING 151 IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS! Summer of 2014 I gained 10 pounds of it back while traveling to the BVI's and Ireland so I have set a new goal for 2017 to be back to below 155.

Great having some more participants: Caro488 and Peggy.

I think kayaking in Alaska would be nice. I've heard canoeing it harder. ??? I've only been kayaking.

I've been kayaking in North Carolina, San Diego, and Florida, (with a gator!) I was in tandem wtih my youngest son who was at the oldest six and he made up a pirate song to get his mind off the very long creature next to us that easily could have bumped us and eaten us. YIKES!

Linda, it's not too late!

I have done quite a bit of canoeing, a little kayaking and no white water rafting. I love being on the water but love the water to be calm so I can enjoy it.

The rafting never appealed to me as I generally like more placid pursuits. I've always loved canoeing and now that I'm small enough to fit, I might enjoy a kayak, although I've never tried it. I will have to confess to a love of jet skis, but that wasn't in the question. Canoeing is a great way to see wildlife.

I also canoed once in Alaska- two families, 8 people. I didn’t like that part because we had to haul the canoes and all the equipment back out to where we met the float plane

Dance like no one is looking.

Love like you've never been hurt.

Live like you'll never die.

I went canoeing once on the Elk River- extreme SW MO. The water was really high and swift- early springtime. Almost got caught up in a snag, overturned my canoe. Luckily my friend in the other canoe had brought us floating packs, so we were able to recover everything- some of it quite a bit further downstream, though😀

I had the great good fortune to go white water rafting in Costa Rica while I was there studying Spanish. You need to know that I am not athletic, and can’t swim well. I had such a great time! The only one who fell out of the raft was the only one (other than the guide) who had been rafting before.
Many years ago, my husband built a Gloucester Gull dory, and we used to take it out on Buzzard’s Bay, MA. Being on the water then was almost silent- so beautiful and peaceful.

Should we not dance just because THEY don't hear the music?
