I have been bitchin' and moanin' a bit recently because I can't find enough playmates to go do crazee things with me, like climbing, hiking, mountain biking etc. Most of you know this already, but I am happiest when I am performing my Julie the Cruise Director duties of organizing, motivating, and executing Days O' Fun. And for some reason, despite living on the borders of one of nature's biggest playgrounds I have been having a dickens of a time scrounging up girlie playmates. (Yes, yes, I know boys will do in a pinch, but I do love me some estrogen time...)
Anywhoo, we have a neighbor who has been itching to get out and do a bit of kayaking on the old Merced river. So we hosed the spiders out of the boats, shimmied into our high fashion '90's river gear and hit the tiniest wave imaginable to test out the oh-so-rusty river skills. And I have to say that it was awesome. I will be the first to admit that kayaking scares the bejeebus out of me. But this was fun and manageable and just enough exciting to make me want more! Lookit me!
Funny story about this day though, I forgot to put in my contact lenses, so I was Squinty McBlindeyPants out there, see?
I sure didn't! Tee hee.
