strange weekend

Monday, 22 October 2007 09:18
This is going to be a strange post! This all happened a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to post this sooner, but I am just getting around to it.

We were up at the lake as usual a couple of weeks ago. We had to pick the boat up from the marina where it was being winterized, and we wanted to get out in the kayaks again. The weather wasn't cooperating much for either of those to happen. We ended up picking the boat up in the rain, and putting it in the garage wet. No big deal, just have to let it air out good before covering her up for the winter. On the way there I introduced the hood of our truck to a pretty good sized turkey though. No damage to the truck, and I am pretty sure the turkey made it out okay also.

Saturday afternoon we decided to take a drive in the drizzle and scope out some potential drop in spots for the kayaks. We drove out on Corey's Rd. toward Axton Landing off of Rt. 3 between Tupper and Saranac Lake. The Autumn colors were absolutely beautiful. Brenda got some good pictures even though the rain was on and off.

It was on that last "road" that things got really strange. We were headed down this dirt path that I believe leads to some camp sites. I was driving very slow as I wasn't sure how muddy things might get. I looked away for a second because Lucy was trying to jump out my window, and Brenda yelled "Oh my God, a naked Man!" I looked up to see a boy in the middle of the path,no clothes on, with his backside to us. he didn't realize we were there. I said "it's just a boy," put the truck in reverse and started baking out, when the boy realized that we were there. He proceeded to hunch over to cover his front for some reason??? I suppose it was just a natural reaction, but it was his backside that was out there for us to see. Brenda was cracking up all weekend about that. We got out of there as fast as we could. He was obviously embarrassed, and I really didn't want to find out why he was there in the middle of the "road" like that.

Sunday the weather cleared and we were able to get out in the Kayaks. We went back to our usual spot, and I decided to take the camera along this time.

Unfortunately it was just a few minutes after that last picture when I accidentally rolled my kayak. Me and the camera went into the water, which was not as cold as I expected. Oddly enough after drying out for a day or so the camera still works, but we missed a lot of opportunities for some great pictures. I did snap a couple with my camera phone... they aren't great.

Then on the way home Monday, there was a traffic jam that we got stuck in for a couple of hours.

It was a strange weekend... but enjoyable. If the boy that was in the road is reading this, we didn't see anything... really.
