Harwood to Hastings...26 km.
Ok so lost my $200 Oakley's today (put on hat and took hat off to get wet then watched them sink)...yes I have a sunglass strap and yes Jeff told me yesterday I should wear it! There I said it....he told me so! Let's move on now shall we...........
9:45am we are sent off by Lisa...want to get Rice Lake over with before afternoon winds kick in....success! Uneventful crossing...long and hot today! Stopped at half way point at a Marina...fueled up (jeff a cheeseburger and me peanut butter on a bagel)...not there 15 mins and Jeff is approached by 2 boys approx. 12-13...they have been there for hours waiting for their Dad...Jeff springs to action and gets his cell so they can find out if they've been abandoned or not?
Clearly no-one else there cared to help the little kids!
Just as we pull back on to Rice Lake, Jeff spots a kid about 13 in a kayak (with no life jacket) trying to learn while his family is on shore watching!
He scoots over to the kid...gives him a few quick tips then off we go! Life jackets people!!!!!!!!
Hastings by 3:30...then set up in the heat....feeling pretty drained after 4 long days in the sun!
Jeff volunteers to go get beer while I set up camp....hmmmmm...is this fair? I'm thirsty so I agree.
2 old Portuguese men (think they were from Keswick) were fishing near us. Kind of sketchy so we didn't want to leave our things unattended.
One old guy drops his fish bucket in the water...finally my chance for a good deed! I dive in scoop up the bucket and make old guy happy.
Laundry...dinner (jeff made his specialty...pasta and canned green beans), coffee...blog!
If Jeff can stay awake might have to finish beating him at cribbage?
Fyi...just as much fun for us to read comments that people post...keep them coming!
