The Birthday Adventure












First thing you must understand about Richard and I...we see 'Everything' that happens to us in life as a 'Adventure' ...no matter how good or bad... and when something goes belly up or does not turn out as planned... we call it the 'Infamous Creager Curse!! LOL...And that is the way things started out yesterday.... We got packed up early for our Day of Birthday Kayaking and headed down to our Favorite place to Kayak ...Cattail Cove, it is about 10 miles south of Lake Havasu. So Richard and I are excited to for 'Adventure' when about 2 miles from the highway turn-off to Cattail we saw Smoke...and plenty of it...hanging over the lake...CRAP we thought...the cove is on fire!!! Pulling into the cove we found out from the Ranger that yesterday was plant debris burning day in the various campgrounds along the lake... Of course it was I thought to myself Grump! Grump Grump!!! (another adventure...right!!) The area was thick with smoke and smelled of burning bushes...so we headed back up to Havasu and put in there.... had a lovely afternoon kayaking under the London Bridge and up the North shore of the lake....
Had lunch in one of the campgrounds ...met and spoke with some out of town kayakers that were passing through and camping in Havasu... that was really nice. We took out time...enjoyed the weather and the day and at the end of it all it could not have been any more pleasant ... a true Birthday Adventure for Richard. Last night we sat in the tipi and had our first fire for the season
if we became any more relaxed ..our legs would never have carried us inside last evening...
So with Rejuvenated Spirit, refocused purpose and the calming of nerves...Richard is back to work, happy as a little kid in a candy store (for him, Hobby Store) ..
Thanks one and all for wishing My Dear Richard a Happy Day...it did mean so much to him...
Hugs to All...
Jodi and Richard
