... And now to a 'Mis-Adventure'

Two weeks ago our kayaking adventure .. well, let's just say a boating mishap at the dock involving another boater ended our date day before it even began.

The Mr. and I were just about to shove off from the dock in our kayaks when a boat caught on fire.  The boat's occupants were able to jump overboard .. and swim to the dock.  We were mesmerized by the whole scene ... needless to say .. no kayaking that day.  Mr. Mac pulled a lady out of the water and onto the dock .. then he rescued our kayaks as the flaming boat drifted ever so close and came to rest at the dock.

Nobody was injured.  Boat was insured.  Dock did not burn down.

All is well that ends well.

Now for a little less excitement!

Mrs. Mac,

OMG....I'm happy to hear you and your husband were not hurt. Good thing the two of you were there to help the occupants.

I would have to agree, a less stressful weekend is in order :-)
