We had a choice of activities today and we chose rubber rafting. Bill was expecting us to be shooting the wild rapids, well it wasn't like that at all. It took me some convincing of Bill to do it, until I read the description of the activity to him which said "A gentle float down the Bow River."
However, we were a little apprehensive when we saw these rapids.......
....and our rafts sitting on the edge of the river. Luckily they were below the rapids so all looked good.
Off we go! (We are at the back, left side, Bill has cream hat and dark glasses, I have white hair and dark glasses and we are wearing orange vests hee hee.) Our oarsman was Irish and funny.
We left the hotel behind us and embarked on an enchanting float down the river.
No civilisation visible, just the river, majestic pines and the mountains. It was quiet and peaceful.
Like the raft in front of us we stopped in this calm sheltered spot where we were given a short talk about the flora, fauna and geology of the area.
Then it was into the faster moving current or small rapids. It was fun, I wanted to go faster and wilder. I didn't take my big camera just in case. I had our little Sony Cyber Shot.
The Michelin Men having fun. After a few hours and many miles down stream we pulled into the edge and we were picked up by a bus which took us back to town.
