Love and Waterton VIII

What is the last thing you want to happen while you are on the lake boating with your friends?
How about the engine getting stuck in reverse?  Yup you heard me.  Reverse.

We put it in drive... we go in reverse.  We put it in reverse... we go in reverse.  We put it in neutral... we go in reverse.  Not cool.   

I know its odd but I kinda like seeing how people react in stressful situations.  I think it says alot about them.  It was Ben's grandpa's boat.  But he didnt play the blame game.  Or freak out.  He stayed calm and tried to find someone to help.  The boys fiddled with the engine a bit.  And we did quite a few circles in reverse.  Nothing helped.  Finally we decided we should just head back to the dock... because worse than being in reverse... running out of gas, in the dark, with no one to help you.  So we reversed our way to the dock.

Ben did a little paddling through a section that requires us to go through these cones... 

And then Ben and Darin paddled us the last bit into the dock.  D supervised.  Cathy swooned at Ben's manliness.
