When I came out of the house to go get the rafts I couldn't believe how warm it was! So we all applied SPF 60 right away before even leaving the house.
Once we arrived at our drop off location I reapplied as well as my daughter (luckily she doesn't have my white white skin!)
My daughter kept asking when we would actually get rapids....hmmmmm....never?!? She was disappointed!
But the float was fun that is until my raft broke and I had to move my daughter to another raft and I seriously ended up swimming the rest of the way. First off the Red Deer River is NOT deep so I was getting bruised by the rocks at the bottom and lets just say even after adding SPF 100 on the boat I still burned so badly I think that is what cause me to feel ill the rest of the week!
I am now buying a long sleeve sun shirt. Cannot express how uncomfortable I was!
