Jeeping... or canoeing?

Yesterday we went canoeing. I've wanted to go for a long time, and we realized there is a place really close by that rents canoes and you can go down the Big Darby Creek. So we did! We got there a little after it opened, around 9:45 or so, and were some of the first down the river. We passed a group, who seemed to like going down the river backwards, and after that only saw a few fishermen along the way. It was a 6 mile trip. It was supposed to take 2-4 hours. It took us under 2. I guess they assume more floating than paddling? It was gorgeous weather and we never even tipped, even though I wanted to!

But, we did see a strange sight. One silly man mistook his Jeep for a canoe. I guess no one's told him that Jeeps don't float! Hee hee.


Sean disappeared from the canoe onto an overhanging branch.
I should have taken off my lifevest for the picture, but if you know me, you know I always follow the rules...so I left it on in.
