I’ve just returned home from a 3 day Living Adventure Kayaking Trip in the Apostle Islands. wow! It was a HOW Trip, Hoigaard’s Outdoor Women, with a total of 17 paddlers and 3 guides on the water. Living Adventure did a fantastic job with all the equipment, food and expertise to make our trip both enjoyable and safe. We truly did live the adventure for the weekend.
Being on Lake Superior is like being in the mountains. It is big and powerful and a little overwhelming. Typical of a mountain, if you don’t like the weather, give it a few minutes and it will change. Even tho it was the end of June you packed everything from a swim suit to long underwear and fleece sweaters. And we used it all, proving once again that there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing for the conditions.
It’s a very empowering experience to be on the water with a group of women. We shared our stories and discovered many wonderful things about ourselves and each other. We were challenged by the weather conditions as we moved thru the weekend and even accepted gracefully the possibility of not getting back to main land before Monday. (We did find a window of opportunity when the wind backed off in the late afternoon and we all got home Sunday nite.)
I am truly blessed to be part of these adventures with the opportunity to get to know so many amazing women. Hopefully you’ll join us one day.
