Rappahannock Adventure

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend my birthday. The Rappahannock river was calming and allowed me to reflect on my first week of classes. As we paddled down the river, I wanted to just roll out of my kayak and soak in the river. My skin was hot from the summer and I was very excited to go into the water. When we had the opportunity to get in, I was amazed that my mud and water soaked shoes were still floating to the top, causing a slight issue when I wanted to tread water. The lifejacket was up to my chin but it was a great experience. I really enjoyed getting to know the FSEM group.

As the rain started, I began to get a little worried. I love watching thunderstorms from the safety of the indoors but being outside during them scares me slightly. However, the people I was with made it lots of fun. I’m really happy that we had the opportunity to all get together and go down the river. I loved spending time with everyone.

When we paddled back, I was going as fast as I could because the clouds seemed to be getting dark (spoiler alert: it didn’t rain again until late). My arms felt like jelly and as I was watching a movie in my bed that night, I felt as if I was still on the water. I honestly love that feeling and it helps me go to sleep because I am a major water child (or at least I used to be). The blue heron we saw while out on the water was breathtaking. I wish I had my phone with me so I could have taken a picture but at the same time I am happy I was able to be unplugged for a few hours. It was relaxing and I was able to let my mind drift. Cronon was right about nature being untamed and wild. We got to experience that while out on the river and I am glad that our group was able to stay calm and make the instance light.

  1. I honestly think we’ve all really grown our class into a partial family. The fact that we were able to keep our spirits light and everyone calm during the storm really shows how much we care about each other. I’m really happy that you’re a part of this class, and I look forward to getting to know you even more throughout the semester!

    1. I totally agree that our class has grown close. It really shows how different our class and also Dr. Larochelle are from other classes and teachers, where classmates who sit next to each other are strangers. I think it’s really cool that Dr. Larochelle provides us with these opportunities to bond and get to know each other. It’s really cool too because we see each other around Virginia Hall pretty often so we get familiarity with that exposure!

  2. I’m glad to hear that your birthday was spent with us on the rappahannock, I feel like it was all a wonderful experience. I feel the same about going to sleep still feeling like I was drifting on the river, and my arms were sore for awhile after. Was a wonderful day!

  3. I agree, our trip on Saturday definitely did help to bond our FSEM together. Honestly, I am lucky to have the FSEM that I have, because others don’t seem to be having as much fun as us! By the end of the day Saturday, I was exhausted too. The shower I took after returning to my dorm was much needed and refreshing. Here’s to more paddling in the future (hopefully)!!
