Just a quick highlight from my week away, white water
rafting on the American River near Sacramento, CA. It
was a lot of fun and coming from me that is saying
something as I am terrified of going underwater. I almost
left before it started when the man in charge gave us the
talk on what could go wrong and how to cope if you fell in,
he really put me off.
Luckily though he was not our river guide and the guide
we had was great and put me right in front of him and
told me if the boat flipped he would grab me before
anyone else, what a guy :)
I will say though that you have to make sure you are fully
covered in sunscreen as I got burned across the top of my
knees, also got a blister from the paddle and a very numb
behind after sitting on the raft for a few hours.
Now I have done something I never thought I would do
and survived! Although now my family is twisting my arm
to go scuba diving - not happening!!
