Paddles Over Pedicures

Hiking with Oru Kayak

For my friend Alex's bachelorette party we had some pretty wild ideas, as bachelorette parties do. Alex’s idea of wild, however, does not include bars, frills or sashes. Alex’s dream celebration involved us getting outside and being as dusty, muddy, and happy as possible.

Kayaking in Iceland Glacier Lagoon

Heading for the Ice Lagoon, we prepped our Land Rovers and hit the road at 12am from Reykjavik. Pushing through the night, we drove across the south to reach the lagoon for sunrise, arriving in some of calmest conditions I’ve seen out in the water. The sound of towering icebergs flipping over left us considering the dangers of being out amongst the ice, so we used every measure of precaution we could find to ensure our safety.

If my memory serves me correctly, I spent most of my days running and playing outside, coming home only for ‘supper’ as it's known on the east coast.

Two Miles

Kayaking in Mexico

My mouth was dry. I couldn’t spit. The swells were white capped from the wind. The waves buffeted my kayak from one direction then another. My husband Nic paddled up over one swell and down into the trough and disappeared from sight. My mind raced with thoughts of what would happen if one of us tipped over. This was not the relaxing paddling trip I had planned. This was not where inexperienced paddlers should be on their first expedition. How did we get here?
