We went canoeing today at a canoe club near us. It had been years since my husband and I were there - before we had children. At that time the club also rented paddle (pedal) boats. Now they rent canoes and kayaks. The rental is for two hours - but we were out for about an hour and a half (long enough).

Besides the fun of gliding along the river and the joy of doing something together as a family - the scenery was so idyllic with the wonderful green canopies of trees above us. We occasionally shared the narrow river with Canada geese and their goslings. And of course there were plenty of other canoers and kayakers on the river. Mainly families - lots of young kids. A wonderful fun outing - one I think we're going to have to do more often (or get the members of our family who have boats and kayaks to take us out)

For now though - I must say that an outing on the river has left me very tired!

No wonder you are tired. You picked the seat that is responsible for the most work.

Kris- yes, I did realize I picked the busy seat. Surprisingly my arms aren't sore.

PJ - It was lots of fun. A beautiful day for it too!
