Kayaking



Hola! The weekend before Girls Camp, Mom and I went on a little kayak trip.  I had never been before and certainly did not know what to expect.  It was beautiful and fun and exciting and a little difficult but mostly fun.  When we arrived we didn't know what exactly we were getting ourselves into so I was nervous when I found out I'd be in a kayak by myself.  I was recalling stories of near drownings on white water trips and freaking myself out.  But as with most adventures in my life, I just start and figure it out along the way.  I had to learn to nagivate some difficult debris in the river, sometimes I had to rely on someone else to help me through and I had to learn from the wisdom of the more experienced paddlers.  I could never see what was coming next just hope that I could get through.  What a good metaphor for life.  I can't wait to go again.
