Renewed life!!

I started paddling at 43 years old. I fell in love immediately, just on lakes in the canoe. I decided to give whitewater kayaking a try at 44 and LOVE it!! Paddling rivers, scenery passing by, water lapping at the bow, it’s absolutely serene! I get antsy towards the beginning of the season now, wishing I had a dry suit. All the river people I have ever encountered are some of the coolest, nicest people I know. And the fact that a couple of them were RIGHT there to help me when I went for my first big swim, was something I’ll never forget. Made a scary experience easier to where I was OK getting back in the water. Paddling is my life now and without rivers, it’s not as fun. We need to protect our rivers!!
