almost drowned

I almost drowned once in a canoe. It was my first ever go, and I tried an eskimo roll.

I got stuck upside down, and didn't know how to right myself. And the little cover that goes around your waist was tucked in weird, so I couldn't release it. I was too far away from anyone else for them to get to me.....

I managed to kind of get my head briefly above water to get a gasp of air, then with a supreme effort, managed to force my way out and to freedom.


Still haunts me to this day...

thanks RRP, I'm grateful to still be alive after such an ordeal....


DannyDyers... I think you're right there. Last time I attempt anything, at all.

My names Mike, I'm 16, I'm a pisces and I'm doing Health and Social Care at level 2 at Peaks college in Sheffield. I'm thinking about doing the NHS apprenticeship next year. £95 a week and can lead to employment within the NHS woop woop :D I have recently met the most amazing girl in the world (to me) and I didn't know it was possible to fall in love so quickly before meeting her. If your looking for that special one whom you share everything with and connect on such a deep level and share soo much with... trust me there out there, I'd been single and lonely for so long, I really had nights where I'd cry because I felt that lonely and I'd have given anything for her to come along and make me hers and she eventually did. You just have to hold on to that hope that they will eventually come along and when they do, make the effort! 1.12.10 I love you Rebecca Emily Clark xxxxxx
