Fun, Fun Fun!!

Fun, Fun Fun!!

Wednesday, June 17 – Up the river with a paddle

 

Today started with me getting up and dressed to go into town to get my nails done. I was disappointed they did not hold up very well. I had called her last week to inform her that they were lifting just after a week.

Anyway, she was very gracious and redid them for me at no charge and wants me to call her next week to let her know hoe they are doing.

Once I left the salon, I called Jesse to see if he wanted me to bring home breakfast from McDonalds. He said sure, so I stopped and then came home.

As soon as I was home we were just sitting down when we heard a familiar voice. Darrell and Judy wanted to know if we wanted to take a kayak ride today.

We both said yes and agreed to meet after lunch at the boat area.

I wanted to go to the laundry room to wash sheets today, so I ate and hurried to get that chore done while Jesse got the lawn cutting done before having to leave.

As we were leaving to meet at the river, we noticed our neighbors Craig and Bonnie mounting there bikes. To our surprise they were also going to join us on a kayak ride.

Sorry I don’t have any pictures, I was afraid to we would get the camera wet, and trust me we would have.

Although no one fell in you get pretty wet from the paddles being brought in and out of the water.

Well I thought Jesse and I would do a double kayak, but everyone insisted that it was much easier to go with a single, so I agreed.

Now I have never done anything like this in my life and I was really concerned that I would hold everyone back because I would be too slow.

I must tell you I did very well, I surprised myself and everyone else. We paddled up river for a little over a mile, then we came down river against the wind, so we needed to paddle quite a lot.

It was much fun and very peaceful just floating around. I did get very wet, but it was OK. The temps were in the low 70’s and the sun was out most of the day. The water was very cool, so I am glad I didn’t fall in.

So once we had returned to the shore Craig asked if I would go again and to my surprise I said yes. I am really out of shape and thought I would have a very hard time. I am sure I will be sore tomorrow, but that's another day.

We were both tired and didn’t feel like doing the grocery run, so we just went up to the lodge and purchased the few items we couldn’t do without and then just relaxed.

We had leftovers for dinner and watched TV and computered until we went to dream land.

What a fun filled day!!!!!
