Outdoor Adventure


Outdoors is where it’s at for us! Manmade fun wears off so soon, but being outside is refreshing. Outdoor activities take a measure of strength & energy though so you have to make sure you feel well enough to really enjoy yourself. Thrill seeking sports is not our style though. We value the precious life Jehovah gave us, too much to put ourselves at risk. We enjoy hiking, kayaking, tubing, mild white water rafting & this year we are going to start fishing & bird watching. Picnicking is also nice & going to our favorite parks & wineries. Since our time is limited for these things I put this list together to point us in the right direction.
