Everybody look at me, cuz I’m floating on a raft!
After our rafting plans didn’t work out on the 5th of July, we tried again today and succeeded! We headed over to our friends’ house a little before noon to catch the World Cup finals (aka an excuse to get together with friends, drink beers and eat food) and decided a short rafting trip was in order for the afternoon.
We floated a couple miles, drink beers and baked in the sun. It was hot! We are lucky we live so close to the river and can just head out for a short while.
The key to our short rafting trip? Picking up a few tall boys. It reduces the number of cans at the end of the trip, and one was all I needed. P.S. – please note I drank Miller Light and Aaron drank Mickey’s 🙂
We are starting to get the hang of this rafting thing and what we would do differently each time we go (or try to go). For example, a 4-person raft is really barely a 2-person raft. The two of us plus a tiny ice chest barely fit. The Golden Gate Bridge? Not quite, but a mini version close to our house!
We had a nice, quiet afternoon on the river with friends and can’t wait to do it again!
