    I really like how your website is laid out. You did a great job with the website. I like that you linked your videos to the website. It is nice to see the videos with your adventures down the river. Kayaking down the river is so peaceful and beautiful. Last time my husband and I Kayaked, we both flipped and my poor husband lost his glasses in the river. This was at the beginning of the trip, so he really couldn’t enjoy the trip much after not being able to see any of the landscapes around. This was our second trip out Kayaking. The videos that were posted does motivate us to go Kayaking more…
