This past weekend, I joined some adventurous women learning how to kayak at Sweetwater Creek State Park. I spent the next hour and a half laughing, chatting and paddling against the wind with these inspiring women. As if the instructor, Kelly Fellows, wasn’t empowering enough – I was watching women overcome fears, and the challenge of that constant wind, to get outdoors and learn something new.
Do you have questions about learning how to kayak like, “Am I going to tip over? Will I get stuck underwater? Am I going to fall in?” If so, you probably have images of thrill-seekers kayaking the dangerous whitewater rapids. This isn’t the case at Sweetwater Creek State Park and you can read all about it in my article on Explore Georgia. But, before you head over there, don’t just take my word for it. Take a moment to watch regular mom, Jennifer, sum up her experience of learning to kayak with instructor Kelly Fellows in Sweetwater Creek State Park’s class, “For Women by Women: Introduction to Kayaking.”
