When I picture the ultimate escape, I think of water.
I don’t think I’ve ever owned a “cute” swimsuit in my life. With my sensible black Speedo tank suits, I’ve put myself through 6 years of university, teaching swimming lessons and lifeguarding. I’ll join in aquafit class with the Golden Oldies at any YMCA. I’ve been snorkeling in Cape MacClear in Malawi, Hanauma Bay in Oahu, and Molokini Crater in Maui. I’ve never hesitated to dive right into the waves and have a blast!
Gathering beach glass is a favourite seashore pass time of mine and I have jars of it displayed in my house. And no matter what the weather, a beach bonfire is my idea of a perfect evening!
As we drove into Springdale, Utah, to visit Zion National Park, I was intrigued to see so many people walking down the street carrying enormous inner tubes. Local adventure companies had a program where you could rent the tubes; drift, bob, and spin down the Virgin River for a few hours, and get picked up for the trip home.
Why, a huge, bouncy inner tube is just my thing! Fortunately, Ryan agreed and we signed up for the river ride the next morning. Drifting along in the cool, refreshing river and enjoying the beautiful scenery, made for an unforgettable afternoon.
