Chicken Wing 2005

Here are my pictures from this weekend at the lake. We went kayaking, visited the Honi Honi Bar, relaxed on the beach, and took the motorboat for a spin. Some of us, not including me, also sunbathed (read: purposely got sunburned) and went swimming. At the time I thought the water was too cold for swimming—an idea that was confirmed each time someone got in the water—but maybe I should've braved it anyway.

I picked up Tornado Kitty from her vacation with Mom and Dad and was convinced to switch her back to regular food from her less-than-appetizing raw food diet. Now that she has lost weight and become more active, she should be able to enjoy normal cat food.

The weather was great today and Saturday, overcast on Sunday. We missed the big fireworks display since the chamber of commerce is strict about scheduling it on the 4th, no matter which day of the week it falls on.

Overall, a fun weekend.

Cool... one of my college friends was from the Deep Creek area, and a bunch of us from my house spent July 4th there in '97, IIRC. (It was whatever year the first Men in Black movie came out.) One night, we went to this arcade/go-cart place, and I actually ran into two girls who were a few years behind me at Westmont. Too weird!

Our return trip home was not the horrid nightmare it was expected it would be. We sailed home in hardly four hours, a literal record in my experience. Amusingly, that travel broucure at the ice cream shop had said "Delaware, four hours" this afternoon, and I had flat out not believed it. I had never done it in less than five.

I will forward along my more choice pictures from the weekend.

Mine too! It was remarkable! I was sure traffic would be backed up.

Yeah, it took us just a hair over four hours ourselves which is an hour less than that brochure claimed. We took 220 up to Bedford to get on the Turnpike, and we reached Bedford in roughly the same amount of time it takes to get there from Johnstown. From there it was smooth sailing.

Also, Katie, note that some sunbathers tanned without burning. =) On top of that, the water was quite warm this year ... or at least it started out that way.
