Daryl’s Journal January 11, 2009

Today we went to some state park.  First we had a barbeque.  I liked it. 


Then we went kayaking. My favorite part was when I got to ride a kayak down a hill to the river.  The bad thing was that when we got down I fell off the kayak and I forgot to take my shoes off.  I wanted to just get about ¾ down (where a platform-like thing was), stop, then lower the boat down and get in it.  I even stopped it!  Then Eric (the person I was riding with) told me to let go of the branch I was holding to keep us stopped.  Bad idea! 


Later I went swimming because I didn’t like kayaking all that much.  I started on an island and tried to swim to the trail.  After getting knocked off course, I got on a kayak.  Later I got back on the island for another shot at swimming to the trail.  Davy also tried but gave up.  I got knocked off course, but kept going.  Finally I made it to the other side…but I was about 30 yards from the trail.  I then just went along the shore until I hit the trail. 


After than we went to the BBQ site.  I had some birthday cake and we left.

About Nancy Sathre-Vogel

After 21 years as a classroom teacher, Nancy Sathre-Vogel finally woke up and realized that life was too short to spend it all with other people's kids. She and her husband quit their jobs and, together with their twin sons, climbed aboard bicycles to see the world. They enjoyed four years cycling as a family - three of them riding from Alaska to Argentina and one exploring the USA and Mexico. Now they are back in Idaho, putting down roots, enjoying life at home, and living a different type of adventure. It's a fairly sure bet that you'll find her either writing on her computer or creating fantastical pieces with the beads she's collected all over the world.

    Happy belated birthday. And thanks for writing your journal even though that’s not exactly your favorite thing to do.
