4.30.11 ~ 120/365

30 Apr

What started out as a day to learn more about Elements 9 and Photoshop Actions took a surprising turn for the better (and really– what could be better than a day playing with pictures?) when Phriend texted me to see if I wanted to go kayaking. Did I? I told her she was nuts for even having to ask!

Before I knew it, we were packed up and heading to the water- cameras in hand. This time we went to a more “challenging” area because I must have proved myself the last time we were out (what was she thinking? 🙂 ). Today though, I just proved that I am a total spaz with zero coordination as I rammed the kayak into pretty much any tree, branch or bush that got within reach of me- and managed to play bumper boats with Phriend on more than one occasion. You’d think that this doesn’t sound like fun~ but you’d be way wrong~ I laughed harder than I have in quite some time, and still crack up when I look at these pictures.

I could write more about our day- but my arms are weak and barely able to type and I must go tend to the “battle scar” to the right of my eye where a branch and I got into a fight (and the branch won…).

A collage of some of the creatures we encountered today (with a shot of Phriend thrown in there for good measure). What I’m not showing is me, stuck in a bush, or with my arms around a tree trying to get around it, or waving goodbye to my sunglasses as they got caught in a limb and taken off of my face….lol. No, those pictures will stay safely on my hard drive ::wink wink:: 🙂

    challenging? oh come on, that wasn’t that bad! There were just too many trees and the water was moving a little to fast. Geeze, my arms don’t hurt a bit, ok they hurt alot! We’ll have to go up there again for practice before we paddle the creek. It was great fun and I think my sides hurt, from laughing so hard, almost as much as my arms do.

    Wonderful shots! They make it look so peaceful… though your description makes it sound not quite so! =P
