A Summer Water Rafting!


I troop with office mates to Mambuaya for another rafting trip yesterday, I just love the excitement in conquering the rapids as we paddle fast and make sure not to be thrown out of the boat.   I have been dying for the advance level but all who signed up to join were all first timers, I was bit disappointed but it never dampen my adventurous spirit to once again  commune with nature along Cagayan de Oro river. Such adrenaline rush!

It was very sunny, all I need here is the ever loyal sunscreen SPF 50. I don’t want to suffer the ill effects of the scorching heat, much less to visit my dermatologist which in less than ten minutes conversation I have to shell out my pocket for the expensive PF.  Anyway, everybody seems to be so excited as we drove to the jump off area, especially the kids. We’re in two paddle boats – the briefing as usual – safety measures, river left & right, forward/back/turn left/turn right paddle, high fives, etc…. There were so many rafters for that day, all in throng to the river. It looks so lively, rafts in different colors (red, yellow, blue,flesh) floating along…

Well, it’s not as exciting anymore as before but the feel of cool water  splashing on your face and body is so refreshing. I choose to sit in front so I could get the first rush and tug of the rapids! Wow! I need to be careful so I won’t be thrown out into the water.  Well, 14 rapids plus tiny uncounted river gush is enough to test your strength.

We ended at Kabula White Water Rafting Park past 1PM, all feeling hungry. great-natabunan-na-akoWe took our

lunch under the trees in the park.  We left the area as the kids would wanted to make a side trip at the Makahambus Park, then finally explored the cave.  As we were talking on our way home, we promised ourselves to schedule another rafting trip – this time for sure in Advance Level…

It would be more exciting and adrenaline rushing!
