There's always a kink or two in the armor,
don't you find that...especially when you are on vacation.
There was the kayaking incident,
yes - let me tell you about the kayaking incident.
The nice "very young man" who loaded us in to our kayaks gave us some great tips,
tips I was sure we didn't need.
I'm like "we have done this before - we aren't novices".
He gave us the cliff notes,
told us to stay right always - and to follow the path around the island we were on.
Of course I asked how long, he said
"us guys do it in about 20 minutes, it should take you two 40 minutes, TOPS".
He pushed us in to the water and we were all smiles!
He never mentioned, and we never noticed all the boats and jet ski's on the lake,
creating some pretty choppy water.
We should have turned around, like the hubs said 100 times, but I am stubborn,
yes I am and I wanted to take the 20 minute ride around the island.
My kayak had a mind of it's own, I was ready to kill the husband for his loving advice,
and my hands were red and swollen from hitting the kayak.
Worst of all, I was going in circles!
As you have probably already figured out, after 2 hours, I had to be rescued,
- how humiliating -
BUT, there is a silver lining...
my rescuer was so cute and so very kind,
he got a good laugh when I told him I was glad I had shaved my legs that day.
Long story, very long,
if you visit The Sagamore, don't believe a word the kayak boys tell you!
There where a few other funny stories,
we ate in the wrong restaurant and froze our butts off,
they need better signage at this hotel.
Then there was the "making s'mores incident"...
the little guy running around with a stick, with half a hot marshmallow on it.
You guessed it, smack dab into my favorite "new" white shirt.
That's interesting, sticky and difficult to remove.
The hubs had fun though and made me the perfect s'more.
There's more, but I think I will leave it at that...
we had a wonderful time and for obvious reasons, there is no picture of me in the kayak!
