Get Wet Challenge
This was my grandparents first and last canoe ride!
Journaling: It took quite a bit of convincing, but we finally talked Gree and Papa to take the canoe out on the lake. They got their gear ready and everyone was on hand to watch and help . Even Uncle Jay and Aunt Peg were there from Florida! As they started to get in the canoe, it happened.....it tipped! Both Gree and Papa were sitting in the water. After the shock wore off, we all were laughing like crazy! Then came the task of getting them back in the canoe. I don’t think they were that interested in it, but they were good sports and tried again. This time, they made it out of the shallow water and out to explore the bay. It was the perfect night for a relaxing canoe ride! They paddled around the bay, through the culvert and back again Mississagagon Lake, Summer 1989.
