    R & I met up with a friend from Facebook the other day and we all went to the river for a swim with K (R's eldest daughter). It was a lot of fun, especially since I remembered to bring my swim fins. It's a good thing that I did bring my fins because the current was pretty fierce, and there were several times that I (or one of the other two gals) would have simply floated downstream had I not been able to swim to the rescue.

    In fact, it was really amusing when K & I decided to swim half-way across the river. I had her hold onto my locks and I just dragged her behind me as I kicked us on over there. Of course, I'm the type of person who likes to push herself, so when it was time to go back, I tried to drag both girls back to the boat-loading dock. That was a HUGE mistake, as I was swimming into the current, and I don't think either of them were kicking, or kicking as hard as they could... So I had an asthma attack right there in the middle of the river with two girls attached to my dreadlocks! Eventually we all made it to safety, but I nearly sent our friend into a panic attack worrying about me. :/ So, I'm not going to try to drag people upstream anymore, at the very least until I'm in a LOT better shape! *laugh*

    Yeah, I'm glad you did make it back to safety. That would be scary! Glad you had a good time though.
