In good company

Every time we’ve gone kayaking on the Russian River has offered a different adventure—always fun, but always its very own special kind of experience.

Sometimes the river is full of other happy vacationers splashing and floating around, and there are plenty of cheery waves and hellos to other folks paddling by, and we can hear the laughter and conversation of picnickers enjoying a leisurely lunch on a beach or a sandbar.  501 more words

Strong Currents

I finished the race yesterday.  That was my goal so I feel good about it.  It was tough, especially the swim.  There were lots of points where I could have easily given up and wanted to, and I didn’t so I am proud of myself for sticking with it. 1,196 more words

Motel Rating: Economy Inn, Santa Rosa, CA

This nights accommodation is surely made an impact. Usually I’m pretty pleased with the rooms we have stayed and I always try to look up for something positive, but unfortunately this motel didn’t give me anything to be pleased. 611 more words
