Project Life 2016 | May (Part 2)

Project-Life-May-3-&-4

Outdoor adventures. At the beginning of the month and at the end of the month. Again, I used Cathy Zielske templates and a bunch of Ali Edwards brushes, some from her digital collection and some from her Story kit collections which I subscribe to. Besides the photos and the selection of brushes and stamps (digital stamps) I included journaling directly onto the photos with Arial font (K.I.S.S.)

This first page is one of the few photos we have of our white water kayaking trip during our anniversary weekend. The nuts and bolts of the story: I was so excited to go white water rafting. Instead, it was kayaking. Single-man kayaking. While extremely exhausting for me, not for Jeff - in the least, I did enjoy it, especially navigating rapids successfully. But, the unsuccessful navigation that led me to fall into the chilly waters of the Green River - not so much enjoyment. In fact, I cried. My RA ravaged, weakened body state lead to quick exhaustion and when I dumped in the water I couldn't get back in until I was helped to shore by our amazing Green River Adventure guide. Even after it was tough going. But, I got back in the kayak, hit a few more rapids (almost tipped again) and finally spent to the point of tears, I had to pull out of the water early (about a mile from the finish). Disappointing, for sure, but I could not go any farther. I commend my husband for his support and even our river mates who were totally understanding. The Green River Adventure guide (I wish I could remember her name) was the best!

The last Saturday of the month Jeff and I drove out to Tybee Island early in the morning to get in line for the Breakfast Club - one of our favorite places to eat on Tybee. Delicious as usual, but with an hour left on our parking meter ticket we decided to take a walk on the beach. It was a fairly good day pain-wise and it was a nice morning with the wind at our backs and a cool breeze in our hair (until we turned around to walk back to the truck then the brisk wind was, yes blowing our hair, but every step became a struggle for me. But, we had a good laugh about it. And it was a really good morning!
