A group of us went kayaking on Big Wills Creek with Big Wills Outfitters in Attalla, Alabama — fabulous!! The water was a little low, but still crazy fun.
Did I fall in? YES! But only once, and when it didn’t count! I was putting my legs in and reached for my water bottle which was rolling around when I was getting in the kayak for the first time and totally went over the other side. Not bad, but my getting in was a little more clumsy than intended. It was maybe the fastest in/out ever! hahaha!
Once I got in the kayak, it was smooth sailing. There are little rushes on the creek, but just enough to make you laugh. Super fun. And once I realized how gentle the ride was going to be, I took off the lifevest they give everyone (you can just secure it behind you). I think the circuit is five or six miles.
We saw horses
wild turkeys (I couldn’t get my phone out and unbagged quickly enough to get that pic), a couple of groups of cows
and just beautiful nature
