I'm really starting to feel the effects of bouncing off those rocks during my unintentional swim down the rapids.

Yes. The pain can be delayed a day or two.
Thing is we are not getting any younger

You really have to stop saying that. We should find a way to get younger instead.

We tipped a canoe and both went in the water while running the rapids. It's a wild ride down a raging river when you're trying to get that damn thing to shore. :D

At least you only got a good soaking. But did you collide with many rocks in the " white water"?

Good job you didn't get your camera wet. But then I doubt you took it. I have a waterproof compact for tricks like that

I had just put the camera back in the dry bag before the accident so it stayed dry. My phone was in my pocket at the time and it actually survived the swim.

I used to love going down the rapids on our rivers. When I used to canoe down them when I was a kid. But I dare say in comparison to your rapids ours are merely a ripple.

The water is low here this summer so the big boulders are less than an inch below the surface. They were really hard to spot in time.

Yes I bet. The canoe must have rocked a few times as you skimmed along the side of the big boulders.

My little sister was sitting on the bottom of the other canoe and her bum is still finding new bruises from where theirs was skimming over rocks. :D

We had some canvas canoes at school. It was a bit scary when you went over a rock snd you could see the canvas move.... We never had one get slashed open though.

The old canvas were pretty good, but these new Kevlar canoes are amazing.

I had a marine plywood canoe. It was very strong. I was sad to have to sell it.

The one I own now is ribless fiberglass and there's no way I would subject that to rapids. It's just a lazy river canoe.
