December was a rollercoaster month!
On the first of December Sheena was an avid adventure sportswoman, but with zero paddling experience. Before the trip she has never powered any kind of craft with a paddle, although as a kid she once sat on a canoe as a passenger.
She learnt the art of rolling, mastered the art of swimming down big rapids, and can now proudly call herself a white water kayaker. She learned how to kayak in white water. Make no mistake, as Sheena herself confesses, she still has a lot to learn. But after a month she has the basic tools under her skirt (excuse the pun) to take on more and more rapids.
We ended the journey in Parys, where Sheena experienced her first river experience in a white water kayak. Here are some shots from her last two days of the journey, taken on the Vaal River:
