This has definitely been the best alphabet date so far, and we will definitely be back at this place again.
For K, we went Kayaking! We found a place in north cave near hull with the East Yorkshire Canoe Club, were it is £6 on a Saturday morning for 2 hours. BARGAIN!
We arrived a bit nervous because we didn’t know anyone, but straight away everyone was so friendly! All the coaches there are volunteers and more than happy to help. A lovely lady gave us our equipment and helped us into our boats and even gave us some string so we could tie my go pro onto my life jacket! We got in our boats and someone pushed us into the water and we were off!
When they asked if we had ever kayaked before, we politely said ‘no we’re beginners’ because you know we haven’t been kayaking in a while and we’re not exactly pros but it all came back to us when we were on the water! We were in the beginners group and we did quite well! Going in straight lines and spinning around properly and learning how to stop. It was great fun.
Our faces lit up though when one coach mentioned he was going to get the paddle boards out! HOW EXCITING! Me and Shannon jumped at the chance! We got them out and was soon standing up and paddling. My go pro had ran out of battery so they kindly filmed us for a bit to put it on Facebook. Unfortunately the filmed the part where Dan the coach pushed us both in the water!
After this we were trying headstands and handstands, and between the three of us we completed the first ever three person pyramid on two paddle boards at north cave! WE HAD SO MUCH FUN!
We will definitely be back at north cave soon. I haven’t had so much fun in a while! We then got in the car with soaking wet, lake water covered hair and drove home, behind some annoyingly slow cars going 30mph in a 60mph zone!
Now it’s time to get ready to party tonight!
ROLL ON NOVEMBER!
