This program was a true display of FD flexibility and resilience all while keeping the stoke levels high! The original plan to kayak and canoe to Bowman Island in Squam Lake was quickly squashed by weather forecasts of downpour rain and thunderstorms. With a last minute backup plan in place, 11 participants traveled to Waterville Valley, NH for a weekend of yoga, mountain biking, delicious food and further connecting with their FD family. Everyone turned up completely un-phased by the change of plans, smiling and simply thankful to be there.
As luck would have it, the clouds lifted around mid-morning on Saturday as we took off for a beautiful 3.5 mile waterfall hike in the hills of New Hampshire. After finishing lunch at the top surrounded with gorgeous views, we headed into town to rent some bikes and off we went again. Some went a little more epic than others, but everyone had a great time. Our ‘island yoga’ was relocated to ‘deck yoga’, kindly organized by one of our rockstar alumna, Boots, with a couple of her friends donating their time and expertise – a wonderful way to end the day.
