Cheap thrills & New Freebies

Seven years ago we bought a little 14' aluminum boat and 6 hp motor. Mike asked two questions. Does it leak and does the engine run well. He's patching a leak (again...he does so about every summer) and the motor never did work right. Now we rely on the generosity of family for a motor (thanks, Smitty). We just registered the boat yesterday, and I picked up my used kayak I bought from a guy I went to high school with (thanks Kevin). This afternoon all 3 boys managed to do a balancing act on the kayak and spent a couple of hours goofing around at the lake. Mike and I tooled around Duck Lake and went down the stream to Junior....the water is low this year. There is just something soothing about being on the water, don't you think? Were it not for real world worries, I could float for hours and watch the muskrats, loons and eagles. (Saw a couple of decent size fish also, but I don't have my license yet.) I love the beauty of this place. The air is thick with scent of balsam fir, wild roses and sweet grass. At night the Milky Way is astounding, given the fact that there are few man made lights to dim the view. If I sit on the deck, I can hear the loons call. Who could ask for more?
