On Thursday evening after we got out of work we loaded up the kayaks and headed to a Full Moon Eve Kayak Adventure. We launch before 9:30pm and came back to shore at about mid-night.
By the way this was my first time doing this outdoor activity. We had another option, which was hiking, but I’m glad we chose to do this. I found it exhilarating.
Perhaps most people would not chose, for their very first time, to do it at night. But since I didn’t know any better I leaped at the chance. I got a quick lesson in paddling. I’m happy that I paid attention, because somehow I drifted away from Gabby. I got lost, I lost my sense of direction, I was like, ‘where the fuck did that building pop out of?’, had no clue what part of the lake I was on, and then I was like, ‘where the heck is my truck at?’ ...among other things.
The good thing about being on my own out there for that time, was that I developed my paddling skills, (Heck Yes!!!) and I learned how to maneuver the kayak to go where I needed to go towards. It was a great learning experience. As I found my peace, I exercised my problem solving skills which helped me head into the direction I needed to go.
I finally found my sis and we headed to shore.
It was a beautiful experience being in the dark, feeling your inner self, allowing yourself to feel all your feelings (good & bad), then learning to navigate your shit and to set yourself right. All while under the supervision of Mother Moon. My Lady of the Night.
I look forward to doing this again.
