I can't quite think of anything more peaceful + relaxing + exhilarating as floating the river.
Since my birthday is in August, as a kid, that is all I ever wanted to do to 'celebrate'.
Of course, living in Oregon, there were many birthdays that came + went with summer downpours...that rarely stopped us from braving the rain though. :)
Last weekend felt like a birthday celebration - we floated the river not one, but two times! The water was just chilly enough to be refreshing. At one point we even got out of our rafts and floated down a few rapids. It was heaven on earth.
This photo right here is a perfect depiction of home, in my soul.
