Coosa River Kayaking Trip

With the colder weather coming in, it was time for me to organize another kayaking trip while the water was still warm. We went to bed early the night before so we could be ready to head to Wetumpka, AL for the early trip starting at 9:30am. Ever since I discovered kayaking, Coosa River Adventures has been my favorite place to rent from. The staff are so friendly and helpful and it’s only $29 to rent a one person kayak for the entire day. Coolers and dry boxes packed, we had a blast out on the water all day! The water temperature was absolutely perfect! I also spoke with the owner and he told me that the water should stay a great temperature until Thanksgiving so this may not be the very last trip of the season!

Can’t wait to organize one more trip this year!!


Beer and Wine Festival 2013

This past Saturday was the 4th Annual Uptown Beer and Wine Fest and it was another great turn out!

Last year at this event, I ended up in the newspaper doing the Wobble so I decided to keep it a little more classy this time.

All kinds of people of people were in attendance and it was so nice running into old and new friends while sharing mini glasses of brews. I wish I’d kept better tabs on all of the beers and wines that I consumed but all were pretty darn good to me!
