I have been very busy lately working on a number of commissioned Home Portraits and Landscape Paintings, but seeing as I am also in the beautiful outdoor world of New Zealand and enjoying precious time with family, I took a few hours out for a bit of relaxation with my husband and kiwi relatives -- a river rafting adventure on the Kaituna River near Rotorua that included a 7 meter high waterfall! Not all that relaxing but great fun! Thanks to the River Rats Adventure Professionals who provided us with everything we needed for a splendid afternoon on the river.
Enjoy the photo sequence of our rafting team going over the 7 meter waterfall and take note of the frame where the raft disappears completely -- that's the handle of my paddle you can see just barely poking out from the froth of the waterfall. You can see we nearly tipped at the bottom, too, but we made it safe and sound in the end! Another inspirational adventure completed!
