Cape Fear on the Weir …

OK folks.  Kayaking White Water is not going to come easy to me. I actually cried on the river tonight, with sheer terror and annoyance at myself, and frustration at my fear.  My sprained wrist hurt, but it was only an excuse… I actually wanted to chuck it all in, and climb up the bank, and walk away…..

Luckily I stayed – and I finally made it down a weir without falling in!  Chuffed, but still terrified.

This isn’t coming naturally, and I’m going to have to work REALLY hard to get better.   But I reckon if I made it down once without falling in,  I can do it again… and again… and again.  Practice huh?
