Trying to stay warm in the morning
At 5:30 Saturday morning we set out for our outdoor adventure! Our group of 11 very different people made for quite an interesting weekend. In total we kayaked 22 kilometers (about 14 miles) within 8 hours, taking occasional breaks to talk, eat & enjoy the sights. We traveled down Minijos river in Klaipeda - a beautiful area with cleaner and fresher air then the 3 of us city girls were use to.
Surprisingly, kayaking was the easy part of the trip. Our camping experience was a little more challenging. As soon as we reached land it started raining, the outhouse consisted of a smelly hole in the ground and our summer sweatshirts weren't quite warm enough. But with good company, delicious sandwiches and lots and lots of blankets, we managed to have a great time! The three of us huddled up in a mass of sleeping bags & laughed in our tent till the sun came up.
The next morning we drove to Klaipeda and Nida, the resort town of Lietuva. We walked along the beach and ran up the dunes. By the end of the trip we were all exhausted and decided to treat ourselves to some American
