Last week, we spent several days up north at our cottage. A couple of those days were "work days" (painting inside, staining the exterior, "lumberjack-ing," organizing, sorting through, and more organizing -- I'll fill you in some other day). But. We were also able to spend some time relaxing on the lake and getting our fill of Up North time.
Jenny loves being Up North with us -- whatever we're doing.
She likes going out in the pontoon boat. She likes hanging out at the fire pit. She likes going for walks in the woods. She likes to swim and wade in the lake. She likes to just crash and watch movies with us in the evenings.
But most of all, she likes . . .
In the past, we have tried taking Jenny out in the canoe or kayaks, but it just hasn't worked. She likes the water too much to sit still. She rocks the boat. . . with her moving about. She tries to take drinks from the lake . . . while IN the kayak. She jumps out mid-ride. She has not been a reliable passenger --- but, of course, she also doesn't like to be left behind.
Last weekend, Brian wanted to take the kayak out. Jenny jumped right in.
And wouldn't get out!
She behaved better than ever, and Brian was actually able to take her out for a little spin.
I have a feeling. . .
that we'll never be able to get in the kayak without Jenny again!
