White Water

We went White Water Rafting whilst in Costa Rica last week.

Now, I have never done this before. I have floated down a river in an inner tube, but nothing like this. The river was only a Class 3 (out of 5) or intermediate level of difficulty.

It was a blast.

In the 2 water pictures, Hayden is on the left side in the middle; yours truly on the right rear (in the white t-shirt).


The tour company employs a professional photographer to go along on the journey. He gets up ahead of the group and waits for the rafts to go past. Then he picks up and gets out in front again for more pics. You can then purchase a CD with 180 pictures of your trip down the river.

At the end of the day, a rainbow appeared in the sky. The 30 gay guys on the trip all wondered how the tour company arranged for that!

My ex-husband used to be with the search and rescue when we lived in the mountains... He was very busy looking for bodies of white water rafters in the summer. - I am sure you appreciate this cheery little comment.
