The next day we sat in the havoc that was the scene of yesterday's drunken mess of a party - most of the cans having had been cleared away by some early risers - and continued to enjoy the sun.
We continued to stuff our faces with food, but less frantically due to now being hungover instead of drunk. Somebody decided it was a great day for canoeing and I was asked to join them. Two canoes were stuffed into a big white van and we drove to a nearby park.
I have never canoed before and gladly accepted the offer. I think I impressed Darren by actually wanting to get into the waters and continued to surprise myself by not capsizing once as I went down the quickly gushing river.
I felt a bit stupid canoeing in pantyhose/sweatpants/borrowed over-sized male runners and I got completely soaked but I absolutely loved it! I can't believe how much I had!!
P.S. I tried absinthe for the first time as one of the girls at the party had a small bottle of the green liquid. Everybody else seemed to be of the impression that it burned going down their throats, but I don't know what they were talking about!
