This year’s annual tubing trip was on August 29th. We piled into two church vans and drove up to Helen, GA to ride down the Chattahoochee River for the day. After the drive we were all itching to jump right in. It was a rather cool day, with the temperature much lower than an average August day and with overcast and a light breeze, but that didn’t stop us from having fun. Riding down the river on our tubes we took selfies, enjoyed short naps and helped nudge each other off the large rocks that got in the way. Halfway through some of us stopped to enjoy the water slides. It was fun racing each other to the bottom.
After we were done tubing we set out to enjoy the cute mock German town. Enjoying a variety of German-type restaurants, some of us even got to watch others tubing down the river. After eating there was a little bit of time left to explore some of the shops and buy some chocolate. The tubing trip is one of the best ways to start off the school year! It really allows one to remember that making time to spend with great friends can help relieve many stresses.
