Notes: 18 / 2 years ago
I watched the guys dock the canoe on Waikiki Beach in my morning stroll. I’m not much of a swimmer nor a sun-worshipper so the crowd on the beach did not exactly convince me to join in the fray. However, I do love paddling back from my dragonboat days. I quickly decided to return in the afternoon with more appropriate outfit for some fun on the water.
The $15 ride was good deal for the amount of fun I had. The boat took 5 paddlers and we followed the directions of the cox. Nostalgia for me! We paddled out to the water, turned the canoe around, and waited for the next surf. Then we paddled hard to accelerate and road the wave back to shore. I love it!
Unfortunately for me, the spray of seawater must have cause an allergic reaction and I quickly developed hives on my face and scalp after the canoe ride. So the rest of the day was a write-off as I headed back to the hotel room to chill with my Benadryl. Good thing it’s all gone when I woke up the next morning.
