We want to make the most of this fleeting summer so we headed north to Crane Lake to get in some family camping time. People drive from all over the country to camp and enjoy this untouched part of nature and we only have to drive 40 minutes. We have everything loaded up in the boat and the kids are ready and rearing to go. We hop out of the car and Jared launches the boat.
Jared is leading the boat over to the dock when a part of the cement retaining wall collapses and Jared falls into the water while flinging his wallet into the lake. No big deal, just reach down and grab it, right. Nope. Not exactly. He reaches down and cannot feel it anywhere. He searches for about 20 minutes and then he takes over kid duty while I search the iron rich depths. Nope, nowhere to be found.
How in TARNATION can a wallet disapear that fast? Just so you know a leather fossil wallet feels a lot like the bottom of Crane Lake. After searching for close to two hours we decided to cancel the credit cards and head on our journey, the girls were happy to be finally heading out.
Fortunately he had no cash in the wallet (he had just spent his last $4 on fishing bait) unfortunately we have no credit cards at the moment and Jared’s really nice Fossil wallet is gone =( Sad, sad day. Oh yeah and the worst part… he has to go to the DMV to get a new driver’s license- arg.
It is a good think that camping and these views are free.
