We got back to the campground around lunchtime after our hike. Nancy went into the Van to fix sandwiches and took these photos from inside the Van.
We had a bag of peanuts on the passengers seat in the Van. This squirrel could see them while sitting on the mirror and needed to figure out how to get them.Sorry the photos are fuzzy, but Nancy’s camera was right next to the peanuts. She didn’t want to scare the squirrel away, so she took these with my camera ;o((
After lunch, a group of us met down at the Kayak Marina. Yes, that’s right, we had our own little marina where we could store and launch our kayaks right behind Gin and Syl’s site!!
We decided to do a little kayaking on Lake Juniper to get ready for our Saturday night Moonlight Kayak Adventure.
Rick and Gail had their own marina at their site, so they are headed down to meet the rest of us. Just look at the kayaking unison!!!
Ray and Kris took their Sea Eagle out for the first time yesterday. You think they are having fun today?!?!?
Do you see anyone with a paddle in the water???
Nancy and I tried to draft off of Dan and Tricia. But what we really needed was a tow rope to do a little skiing;o))
One of the best kept secrets around!!
We hadn’t paddled halfway down the lake when it was time to take a break. Remember, some of us have already walked a LONG way today;o))
Most of us decided to head back, but Dan and Tricia along with Bruce and Laura wanted to go down to the Cypress Trees. Does Laura look a little frustrated to you??Well, there is a reason which I’ll explain shortly ;o))
The rest of us returned to our marina to take out. It was a beautiful afternoon and a nice easy paddle. That is for all of us but one couple.
Remember that photo of Laura, looking a bit frustrated. It seems that they continued to have difficulty paddling their kayak as they continued on with Dan and Tricia. Dan attempted to pull them along with his motor, but even that wasn’t working. So they pulled over to a dock to see what was the problem. Well, when they looked under the kayak to see if they could see a problem, they realized they had been paddling the kayak backwards!! Yes, the rudders were in the front;o)) Poor Bruce and Laura (AKA – The Captain and Tennille) are going to live with this one for a while ;o))
However, we couldn’t pick on them too long since they brought us all a wonderful treat for later this evening!!!
