After breakfast, I tried a kid’s kayak that Maren and her boy friend, Norbert, brought for me from Germany. It is the same style of boat I use at home, but it was too small. So, we had to go to the kayak outfitter and get a boat that fit me. The only boat they had was fatter than what I am used to, but I was able to make do.
When we got on the water, we started with some easy rapids with 1 foot waves, and few rocks. I had not used a boat for awhile, so I was a little rusty. Then we worked up to bigger drops and 2 foot waves. The last rapid had a long wave train at the end with 3 foot waves. I had a blast! Boating reminds me of sledding because it is scary and fast.
After boating we stopped by a good ice cream place were Maren goes after Kayaking. I ate three scopes! I also ordered a sweet, cold lemonade. Today was so fun that we might stay here another week.
I am writing this entry on a bench by our camp reception center. We were lucky that the camp has internet. Today was the best day of the trip so far. Thank you for reading Rohan Geographic!
