Stormy Ride

August 2017

I love the water, whether a pool, a lake or the ocean, there's nothing I'd rather do than take a swim or glide across the waves on a boat. While I have tried a number of water activities like kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and white water rafting, I have never ever been in a canoe - until last week.

I've always been a little scared of canoes because of the stories I've heard of them tipping over. One of my friends finally convinced me to give it a try and it was fantastic! Because I didn't have any experience steering a canoe I sat in the front and helped paddle. It was a nice way to take in the scenery, but what started out as a calm ride took a turn when storm clouds rolled in and we got pummelled with rain!

We picked up the pace and made it safely back to shore, but it was definitely a little scary!
