Riverlife mother kayaker

This was a spontaneous booking to get out and about, turned out with the cloudy sky looming the rest of the arranged attendees pulled out. This meant I had one on one kayak session with the lovely Chris. We were able to head past the story bridge and cross the river multiple times, the sun came out so did my tan lines! Such a relaxing afternoon! I'll be back before you know it!
