Today is another gorgeous day at our cottage.
The weather is beautiful, the water is beautiful.
The only thing I am sad about is that Heather and Kristy both had to work, so they couldn't come up this weekend.
So Ashley and I had been spending a lot of time together.
First we went for a morning walk, until the mosquitoes chased us back into the cottage.
Then she bugged me to go swimming (which I rarely do), but I got on the raft and floated around on the lake, Wayne was in the water, and Ashely sat on the dock....little bugger.
Then I finally got to take the kayaks out.
Ashley wanted to get some photos of the water lilies.
So we got in the kayaks and paddled to the flowers.
Actually doesn't she look a little we in this photo ;)
Before going out in the kayaks, Ashley put her phone and a face cloth into a plastic ziplock bag.
We then asked Wayne to help us take the kayaks down, as he stores them for the winter hanging from the rafters in the garage.
We were paddling looking for the perfect water lily to take a photo of.
Ashley noticed a spider on the outside of her kayak. I went over to her and knocked it off as she was screaming so loud.
I guess I missed it as it started to run on the edge of her kayak close to her. Well you would have thought there was a snake in her kayak as she screamed so loud.
Then she tried to get away from it, which was funny as you can't go anywhere.
Well she was freaking out, trying to get away from the spider, she flipped her kayak.
Luckily we were in shallow water and she put her phone in the ziplock bag.
I am still laughing about this.
She pulled the water-full kayak to her grandpa's dock....who is just behind her in this photo, and he helped her dump out the water.
When this was over and done with, she told me your going to put this on your blog aren't you.
My answer...well of course I am ;)
After all was said and done we continued on our kayak ride.
She gave me her phone to hold onto though ;)
She wanted to check out the river. In order to get to the river, we had to paddle under the highway. Like there are no spiders in there, lol.
We did see 2 swallows nest attached to the walls of the timbers.
Onto My Day.
Just more or less relaxed most of the day, besides swimming, walking and kayaking.
Wayne and his dad changed some pipes in the sauna early this morning.
I was up early (6:30am) as Kristy had to walk to work this morning and I was worried about her. So I made her text me when she left home, I did text her during her walk there, then she texted me when she got to work.
Hope you all had a creative Saturday :)
I found my 2010 camp notes at the cottage. I didn't think they were here, but I had some other notes attached to the top of them. Just happy I had found them.
