Yesterday, we tried something new: whitewater rafting. To be honest, it was not what we expected. We thought there would be more action, and were a bit disappointed that it was more a float down the river than a hold on to your seat, fast paced, adrenaline packed adventure. Apparently, we need to go on a dam release date for more rapids, but being novices, we didn't know this when we made our reservations.

But, always one to see the bright side, I have to admit that it was fun. Slow, but fun.

The trip down the scenic Lehigh river was about four hours long, and the price of admission even included a picnic lunch about midway through the trip. I'm not sure if it was the location (a private picnic area nestled in the woods on the riverbank), or the fact that we were starving from all that paddling, but hotdogs with all the fix-ins, chips, potato salad, watermelon and lemonade never tasted so good.
