Kayaking the Potomac

kayak1

Anyone who knows me also knows that I really do not like being in water. The truth is, in fact, that I am down-right afraid of water. So this was a huge step for me.

My husband and I were invited to go kayaking on the Potomac River with some friends, and I decided to take the opportunity to conquer my fear.

Being surrounded by supportive people really helped calm my nerves, as did having my husband in the kayak with me.
