Great wrote up Joe! My heartfelt thanks to you and our greatly missed Janet for planning this adventure. This was one of the best times ever for me! Loved (almost) every minute!☺️
The beauty of the area, the peace and quiet, the full moon over the ocean and islands was magical!!
And the exploring turns out to be one of my favorite things now to do!
man’s the challenge was really perfect for me. So grateful for the experienced consensus of the group and the terrific camaraderie!
That was a challenging return to our campsite after a wonderful day of discovery and beauty!
But I am so happy that we did it!
I remember with about a mile to go, and that was the hardest paddle I’d ever done, on our way back to our island home, I felt that I was paddling in desperation for survival and you paddled so easily up beside me and said, “I haven’t seen you lose your sense of humor yet Barb”! 🤣
Just what I needed to keep me going and stop all the swearing that was accompanying the self talk and playing of songs to keep paddling to, that was going on in my head. You are such an excellent coach along w terrific adventuring friend! I’m so delighted and grateful!
Also thanks to my new also favorite adventuring buddies, Beth and Cora and my dear longtime friend, Jody, who got me into this fantastic group and also was our chef and “here’s how I do it” coach on how to do this camping with all of the stuff out of a kayak! I’m hooked now and will be working on purchasing all the stuff I need to do this as often as possible- when the winds lessen up thar!
Looking forward to more adventures with you all!!
