Lunch and Launch Where?

When I got home from the gym Monday morning, I began telling the Pres how one of my friends suggested that I go to Harbor Freight Tools to look for replacement tires rather than the local hardware store because they would cost much less.

(oh, that's right...I never told you how I got a FLAT TIRE on the kayak carrier while on my most recent kayak excursion.  Well, I did.  And because the darn tire was flat the entire assembly tipped to the side with the kayak securely strapped to it which made pulling it up the steep gravel hill very difficult...grrrrrr!  That contributed to "The Not So Perfect Day".)

Fast forward to today because it's the present that matters.  So, after quickly changing my clothes, the Pres and I headed into town to get the dog licenses at Town Hall
 before we headed to the store to look for a replacement tires. 
Although obtaining the dog licenses was a success, we had no luck finding tires.  
  Since they didn't have the axle size, we bought Slime Tire Sealer instead (which has since been placed in the tires of the kayak carrier).  

The Pres insists that I will NOT get another flat.  And life is about trust, right?   

Now, since it was lunch time, the Pres suggested we stop at  Dennys, which we do not have close to home. 

Lunch was GOOD and I, as usual, was starving so everything vanished from my plate!

 Since I drove, the Pres asked me if I wanted to go home a different way.  Driving home "the back way" proved to be as good as lunch if not better because look...I found my next kayak challenge for this week!   The Pres suggested that we take a peek.


Oh, not to worry, I won't go over the dam, although I would love to...just once...wouldn't you?

However, I'll put in just above it.  While we were there we checked out the path to the water.  I will say that getting the kayak to the water will definitely be a challenge and give the repaired wheels a workout.  The gravel path to the water is at least 60-75 yds uphill from the parking area!


just saying and sharing...

Hope your tires stay pumped. I haven't eaten at a Denny's in at least a decade.

The town clock tower is very attractive and the dam is quite pretty. Yes, I think you'd best stay away from the edge of it. lol Good luck with your kayak adventure above the dam.

slime or goop works wonders. truly saves my life on the lawnmower tires...

Ann said...

Look forward to hearing about your kayaking adventure when you go there. What a gorgeous spot

Ida said...

Well the dam looks pretty cool but (are you crazy?) no way would I go over that in a Kayak or any other boat. I'm so not adventureous, but you have fun!

LV said...

You are braver than me. No way would I get in one or ride the falls.

Carola Bartz said...

Well, please don't go over that dam, will you?

DebbieM said...

Beautiful watchtower!! Kayaking sounds fun, but not over a dam!!

Sandi said...

Pretty how the water pours.

Betty said...

Do you go Kayaking by yourself? Doesn't look like fun to me because I don't know how to swim!

Gail said...

Beautiful place for an adventure.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sounds like you had a good excursion looking for those tires, JP...lunch and a new kayaking location and, of course, I know you won't be going over the dam.
