But, with picnic in tow, we headed to the canoe livery. As we were leaving the parked car, I realized that my diamond necklace – which hasn’t been off my neck since Rick gave it to me for Christmas – was broken and the pendant part was missing.
After a brief moment of panic when I cut my toe open tripping on the steps, we were off!
I needed canoeing lessons from Rick!
Turkey sandwiches, ginger snaps and Tab. Does it get better?
The view from the picnic area was lovely.
The porta potties were definitely a welcome relief!
Then back on the water.
I almost ran us into a – well, it was bigger than a branch. More like a limb. Now I know why they call it “limbo” – I did a backbend on the canoe seat I never would have imagined I could do! (Steering is not something that is intuitive to me!) But there were so many pretty moments, I couldn't stop looking around (versus straight ahead).
Finally, we made it to the landing. I was actually sorry to see the time end.
While we waited for pick-up, two lost dogs hung out. They decided they wanted to take a nap in the pick-up van; it took food to coax them out.
The big one was especially sweet.
Then back to the house, where the Gypsy asked, “Where’ve you been?”
