Saturday was awesome for another reason too...I got to sleep in! I think I slept between 12-13 hours! The funny thing is that I'm still exhausted...having a hard time staying awake during the day. I look forward to a normal sleep pattern again.
After arriving back on base, we rented kayaks. We rowed around the little island--going under several bridges. The funniest part of the whole thing was getting under the last bridge. It was high tide, so it looked like it would be a bit tight...I just didn't know just how tight it would be! I was sitting behind Kristine (my roommate) in the kayak and her plan was to speed up as fast as possible and then lie down and coast under the bridge. I agreed and we sped up and then leaned back...I NEARLY hit my head on the bottom of the cement bridge. I think I had about a two-inch margin! As we were rapidly approaching, I was thinking..."Oh dear...this may hurt!" Thankfully, I didn't hit the bridge, but once we got under, I had to use my hands on the bridge bottom to push us out of there. We were laughing the whole time because it was just so ridiculous! The other groups were funny too since one of the kayaking groups had a hard time making it under any of the bridges and got stuck at two of them...so we just sat and waiting and laughed! That was the best part of the kayaking trip.
By the end of the day, I think we had worked out nearly every muscle in our bodies. We dragged ourselves back to the house where I slept quite soundly for the rest of the night! :-) It was a good day!
