Colourful kayaks, wonderful women donned in cumbersome paddling gear wearing big smiles and sparkling eyes, anticipating antics of the day ahead.

Friendly chatter and stories shared, making new friends, carrying kayaks from blue pool, up the river we were led.

With sounds of rushing water, bubbling and tumbling, women of all ages and paddling stages gathered together.

Strokes we were honing, water was freezing, ferry gliding, eddying, and lots of gratitude for sunny weather!
