The SGT and I spent all day yesterday out on Percy Priest Lake with our friends. A few weeks ago, Phong found that one of the islands is an actual camp ground that is rarely used. So he claimed it in name of himself and we’ve been hanging out there a few times. Our friends are the out doors-y type so we were well equipped to spend the whole day (we got there at 9am and left around 630pm) hanging out.
We had hammocks! Three of them!
We had a bunch of kayaks:
And a photographer.
And a ton of food. The food was difficult to photograph but we had lots of chips, cookies, cupcakes, grilled shrimp, grilled steak, grilled chicken wings, grilled veggies, grilled bread and lots of water and alcohol. Some folks brought fishing poles in hopes of catching fish and then grilling them but alas, the tides were literally against us. We had a great time and I learned a few things about myself:
I don’t do well in high heat/humidity.
Apparently, I do get motion sick from the water.
I should not wear flip flops when trying to walk over rocks.
Pack more water than I think I will need.
I did bring my knitting and gave a demonstration lesson to most of the guys there. Everyone thought it was cute that I brought a hexipuff to work on but they’re using to me KIP-ing everywhere.
All in all, I also learned that the SGT and I are blessed with really great friends.
