|Theme photo- Just starting out|
Enjoyed our day with family. Hope you enjoy the photos.
|There were 6 of us all together. 4 in the blue raft and 2 in my orange kayaks. (not the best choice). Next year we are going to try the inflatable kayaks that they have.|
|Hanna took the front seat|
|Jerry and Randy mastering the Kayaks (for now)|
|Our cousin Roz|
|A large group was taking a break on a scenic part of the Vermillion River|
|This dog's owner was on the cliff, throwing things in the water for the dog to go and return|
|Rearranging after a kayak capsize|
|Paul draining the kayak. He is laying in the raft and I am to his right holding up the other half of the kayak|
|This Kayak was really only built for 1.|
|And were off again|
|And he's off again (Paul)|
|Damselflies were everywhere. We did see some dragonflies, but they didn't stop long for a photo.|
|After the Wildcat Rapids, we took turns in the kayaks. This is Paul and Jerry|
|Yes, I did make it all the way to the waterfall.|
|My kayak and the waterfall|
|Upclose waterfall. There was quite the breeze here. Good thing because we didn't stay long with the invasion of the mosquitoes.|
|All of us by the Matthiessen waterfall|
|One last photo before we left (check out the raft!)|
We had a great day! The hardest part of the whole day was carrying the kayak back up the hill when we got back. We laughed so hard our cheeks and stomachs hurt. This is the 2nd year we have done this after our July 3rd party. Next year we are looking at renting the blowup kayaks. We rented the raft at Vermillion River Rafting near Starved Rock.
I will leave you with this: If you are not having a good or great day -- Go outside!!!
