I talked to an old friend today. She grew up in a Lake Michigan town, and shared with me that everyone in her town had to learn to swim. She is a black woman not held back by fear of the water. One of her favorite sports? White water rafting. She shared how her husband went rafting with her once. He did fine, but being a non-swimmer, he just didn’t feel comfortable trying white water rafting again.

My friend told me that swim skills may not be too helpful in the rapids, but they really give you a level of confidence you wouldn’t have otherwise.

I’ve never been white water rafting, but it sounds like so much fun! Then there’s kayaking, canoeing, boating, sailing. . . not to mention scuba diving and snorkeling. The summer is of essence. What water sports are you going to partake of?
