Lesson learned - again

Take one trip cut short due to a sick pet. Add one freshly cut key that wasn't doing it's job. Multiply by the speed of a storm moving in. Where does this get you? Hmmm. In the middle of a lake in a leaky canoe using Adirondack chair armrests for paddles. Righty-o.

And what lesson was learned? Well, sometimes things don't go as planned. But when you are given the opportunity to get out of town and hang out by a lake, you make the best of things. And what an empowering feeling that is. I am almost glad our day played out in the way it did.
p.s this is a picture from last summer at the very same spot. When things went according to plan.


  1. ohh so many questions! but you are alive to write about it so I guess the most pressing question is answered. LOL

  2. hahaha... adirondack chair for a paddle. CLASSIC!!

  3. Turns out it was a problem with the lock! :( I'm SO SORRY! I promise you a fall weekend in the same spot :)

    Amazing you made it across the lake and back in the canoe-that-could-be-a-sieve with your creative paddles.
