Today I went on a canoe trip with my small group from church. There were 10 of us that travelled to Indiana to mosey down a river together. The water was very low, so sometimes, moseying really meant getting out of the canoe and walking to the next part of deeper water. It was a lot of fun. I didn't mention the trip to a lot of people beforehand because I knew all the teasing I would get. I'll agree that it's not my usual choice for a Saturday exursion. But I love my small group and I was up for the adventure from day one. Originally Alyssa and I were going to be partners. Until we realized that neither of us have been canoeing. Well, technically, I've been in a canoe before, but I just sat in the middle while two other people rowed the boat. I had the great fortune of partnering with Diane. I must say, I probably made her work too hard. I just paddled however I wanted to and she did all the steering from the back. But it worked. And I think she enjoyed the trip with me. Here are a few pictures from the trip. Unfortunately I was the only one with a camera, so there is no visual proof that I was on this trip with everyone else. But I promise I was the photographer!
The moral of the story: I would go again. And I picked a great group to go merrily down the stream with.
