Cookie is handling the river like a pro. Very impressed. Although the kayaks are more streamlined and faster on the water, they are more susceptible to being flipped on whirlpools ( of which there are MANY in the remains of the flood water! ). I only have to pretend to paddle really and Josh does all the steering, so it’s a bit of a luxury to be able to relax and just take in the sights ;) I have ot pretty easy!
The water is still pretty fast flowing today making for easy progress. All obsticles are covered up by it, only tricky bits are the whirlpools caused by the fast current. Some of the other folk who started with us tipped up in a particularly big one, much to our amusement :)
