kayak trip continued

I suppose it's about time to finish my original story about our kayak trip this weekend.

We really had a great time, but I just took too long to take the photos off my camera. For this trip, I didn't take my Canon 40D (not a chance!). I took my Canon 790IS, a little point and shoot and it did a great job.

Greg talked for most of the first hour about a school bus along the creek that reminded him of the one from "Into the Wild." He was anxious to dock and get out and look at it, but once he said, "There's poison ivy everywhere!" I decided to stay in my boat and wait for him to return with photos. Thankfully he did return, and didn't decide to live in the bus and eat poisonous berries.....

Lastly, I had to share this photo because it makes me laugh.

What was Amber doing?

Trying to dig out my surprise passenger on the trip.

I truly didn't know he was there until the last 15 minutes of our trek when he emerged from the styrofoam and taunted me. I even took on some water trying to wiggle away from him.

Much to my surprise, Amber loves frogs. Luh-oves them, so she wanted to have a froggy rescue, which I was more than happy to allow :)

Okay, the BUTT photo is too funny. I am in awe of this river you all are on. I think my Kayaking days are over but I could see me in a Canoe. I love that you and Greg enjoy the outdoors so much. There is nothing like getting a little dirty every once in awhile.

Looks like SO much fun! I love these photos! So serene. :) And how cute is that frog?! I probably would have been a bit iffy if he were in my boat too. LOL. :p

I think I would have taken on a bit more water than you did if I found that little guy in my kayak! Although the photo of him is very cute.

That bus is awesome by the way...that would make for some very cool photos, possibly very itchy ones, but cool none the less.
