Canoeing Highlights!

Highlights of the canoeing trip:
1. Stopping on the river to eat ham and cheddar sandwiches and barbeque chips
2. Forgetting about the time change in Indiana and having to do the 4-mile “mini” trip instead of the 11-mile trip
3. Drunken Hoosiers singing “Tomorrow” from Annie, the Banana Boat song, and “Who Let the Dogs Out” while tubing down the river
4. The time a gigantic bug landed on my elbow and it looked like a frog and I tried to grab it and it flew away and I freaked out and made a weird noise and accidentally threw my paddle
5. Mr. Imp, the dirty bucket and the soapy water bottle
6. Getting stuck on the rocks in shallow water while trying to avoid the undertow that, according to the bus lady, would take our canoe underwater and keep it there for 45 minutes
7. Beef stick related nausea
8. The woman who was encouraging a 3 year old girl to go ahead and get in the water right next to a “no wading or swimming – drownings have occurred” sign
9. Sore arms and shoulders that were totally worth it
10. Listening to my new playlist which is not yet a CD during the car ride : )

Great weekend. Canoeing was so much fun and full of excitement and adventures! It was definitely one of the best trips I have been on in a long time.
