White Water Rafting Trip

Simon: Day Eight, white water rafting.
Lindsey
: Yee-haaa!
Simon
: This is a river, one tough bitch. A swirling, raging, thrashing, torrent of screaming water.Lindsey: Screamin’ water!
Simon
: And I choose my words carefully, because she’s upturned the boat of many a clown, who thought they could tame her. You must respect her, you must respect the river if you wanna come out of her alive…
[Simon turns to look at the river]
…you must respect her, understand her…

[Lindsey pushes Simon in the river]

Lindsey: Huhuhur, he’s in! That’s a tenner you owe me Baz! Hahahaha!-The Fast Show


Earlier this month, Match took me on a white water rafting trip for our first anniversary/birthday. We opted not to buy the photos because they were crazy expensive. But as luck would have it, the other couple from our raft bought them, and she emailed them to me a few days ago. Made my month! I offered to give her money but she insisted that it was a gift to us. How sweet are they? Now I feel kind of bad for complaining that they didn’t paddle. Well, they didn’t, but who cares because now we have fabulous, priceless photos of the trip!! Instead of sitting here gushing about them, I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Aren’t they badass? Oh, and Match and I are in the second row. You can tell it’s me because I have a ridiculous grin or open mouthed expression on almost every single picture.

We had such a fun trip! I cannot wait to go back.

    I seriously wish you lived closer! For one of our anniversaries, we went skydiving! Ya’ll sound like our kind of people. :o)

    I love the rafting pictures! Makes me wanna go, but I’d have to travel to get anywhere close to a place with good enough rapids. Booo.

    […] turned 28 and celebrated a very mellow birthday. But it was more than made up for by the white water rafting trip that Match took me […]
