It’s an exciting morning at the Fraser River Lodge as the kitties gather for breakfast and start to share their pictures and their experiences from yesterday. Abby, Mugsy and the other shoppers talk about their trip, while trying to hide the gifts they’ve gotten from those snoopy noses who might try to peek. The white-water rafters are still pumped and everyone is eager to hear about their trip!
“First of all”, Bugsy begins, “we got into our wetsuits and PFDs, and our guides showed us the various maneuvers we would be asked to do. After all, they said when you’re in the rapids is not the time to be asking ‘what do I do now?’. Then we all piled into the raft. Francis was nervous!” “I was not!” protests Francis, and continues “at first, the raft just bobbed along gently and they had us practise all the moves they had demonstrated. Why, Kibbles even said it was boring and laid down to take a nap. Then the water started to move faster, we bobbed up and down and water washed over us in the raft.” “Ewww, it was cold!” remembers Meiko “and no one told me we were going to get WET!” Everyone rolls their eyes.
“What was it like in the rapids?” Simon asks, fascinated. “Well,” Yoda picks up the story, “as we approached Hells Gate, things got WAY more interesting”. All the kitties who were involved nod and murmur in agreement. “First the raft started to spin and we struggled to keep it from tipping over as the rapids turned white and churned all around us.”
“It felt like a roller coaster!” exclaims Mac, who still looks a bit green. “Yeah, but without a seatbelt!”, adds Kibbles. “The whole raft flew up in the air,” declares Bugsy, “I thought for sure someone was going to fall out!” “It was awesome!!” exclaims Meiko. “It was so LOUD!”, adds Francis. Then they all begin to talk at once.
