All it takes is a short drive and a boat to reverse weeks of stress and frustration brought on by daily life. Just close your eyes and picture it (after you finish reading this, of course): the gentle rolling motion of the water, the blue sky dotted with lazy clouds, the reddish hue of the rocks juxtaposed against the green of the trees. Then, just as you're getting lulled into a sense of peace and security, you hear it: the low roar of an approaching rapid. You tense up, anticipation filling your consciousness. Before you know it, you're in the middle of a wet torrent of white. Then, as quickly as it started, you're back on calm water. There, don't you feel better already?
