Kayaking with My Mom

Kayaking with Ma

I must admit . . . I was a little worried about taking my Mom on this river.  We have been kayaking for a while now . . . only a couple of times on a river, and they were wide.  This river is narrow with twists and turns . . . and lots of places to end up in the river.  So, I did a dry run the week before just to see what I was getting us into.  Afterwards, I still had some reservations.

Was I crazy taking my 88 year old mother kayaking on the river?

It is so beautiful though.  This picture isn’t a great shot of the river.  It is the Kickapoo River in WI.  We started up at Ontario and just did a short two hours.  There are so many rocks and cliffs.  She loved it!

And, we didn’t end up in the river!

    A ‘dry run’? I bet that was fun 😉

    Knee-jerk response: “Well, Duh!”

    Considered response: “Of course, that depends how healthy and agile she is. I wouldn’t dream of trying it with my 89-year-old mother, as she is frail and barely mobile :/”
