Birthday Kayaking with a side of Birthday Sushi

To celebrate my birthday, Tim planned a kayaking trip down the broad river with some of our friends. The drive to the Sandbar company was through the N. Georgia mountains, we weren't so sure that Tim's car was going to make it. Should you ever go kayaking with the Sandbar company (which I recommend), if you haven't said "where the crap are we?" at least 5 times, you have not arrived yet. So we packed up our coolers and joined Mary, Matthew, Austin, Denise, Christian, Luke, and Matt for the "wild" ride down the Broad River.

Along the river there are points where people pull their kayaks out to hang out (imagine giant frat party but on a sandbar in the middle of the river). On one such sandbar there was a post with small planks of wood nailed on for you to climb up on and jump off. This of course drew a big crowd because if you weren't jumping off, you were watching the others jump off (or the intoxicated ones belly-flop off). I was of the crowd that gracefully jumped off.

We finished the awesome day with birthday sushi at my favorite restaurant! Sushi-coma after kayaking = fantastic birthday celebration!
