Rafting on the Delaware

On Monday I went rafting down the Delaware with a few wonderful ladies from my stable. We loaded the cooler with beer, wine, fruit, and sandwiches from a local deli before hitting the water in our itty bitty bikinis and shades.

Quickly ditching the life preserves for some much needed rays, we attempted to navigate the first leg of the river and ended up merely spinning in circles as the current took us downstream. On multiple occasions, rocks hidden right below the surface of the water caught our raft and held us in place among the swirling rapids forcing us to attempt to dislodge. These minor delays hindered no one. We lounged in the raft, uncaring of speed or time, merely lavishing in nature’s beauty, the bright warm sun, and the steady pull of the current.

The wine shop owner promised us four bottles… We ended up with a catheter bag of Pinot Grigio and no glasses. Empty beer bottles it is!

It was a beautiful day for sun and adventure!
