Weekend Canoe Trip!

Rose Finley

 

I can't think of a better way to spend a summer weekend then two days camping on the river with 11 girls, canoeing, cooking over a fire, laughing, having fun, and getting sunburned! Ok well minus the sunburn ;-)

 

Starting the adventure!

Our first night was hilarious. I had a tent all to myself and just laughed hearing my sisters and my friend Monica, who all opted out of sleeping in a tent to sleep in the canoes. I think they were worried about the river flooding out our little island! During dinner we saw 4 whole tree with roots and all float down the river while we were eating.

 

My cute little sister!

We set out to go 30 miles in two days. We shattered that goal and did 30 miles in one day!!! The river being high and faster then normal from storm west of us and rain a few days before helped us move down the river faster.

While the river was higher and faster it was still safe enough to canoe, float, and swim in! I even did some Triathlon training. :-)

This is what 7 girls look like after canoeing 30 miles and carrying 6 canoes up 200 yards!

Sunday morning devotions on Eph 3:20
 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

Everybody had fun...I think :-) one of the girls is already planning for next year on what to bring and what not to bring!
It was a perfect weekend to relax on the river and soak up some sun!

See you on the river next year girls!
