(and I’m sure someone will)
Sunday afternoon I was at the local lake (Lake Lansing) for some rescue practice. I did a wet exit in preparation for working on a re-entry. When I lifted the kayak up to drain the water out it slipped in my hand and bounced off of my face. Just a little bump (;)> so do it again right and then start on the re-entry. I’m floating in the lake maybe 100 yards off shore and someone said “did you lose a lens?” Indeed I had. Nothing to do about it out there so stuff the glasses in the PFD pocket & go on about the afternoon. About 1 1/2 hours later we were done & headed to shore. I portaged the kayak over to the car maybe 20 -30 yards & started drying out and loading up. I hung my PFD & skirt on one rack end while I was getting the boat sponged out & loaded along my other gear. The PFD & skirt went in with the rest. I changed clothes & chatted some and went back to the car. As I approached the car I see something laying on the ground just about under where the PFD had hung. Yes, it was the lens. I was able to have the glasses repaired today. How that lens stuck around with all we did on the water & didn’t come off until just by the car is a mystery. Maybe there is a pike in the lake that likes to do good deeds. I’m thinking that I won’t be fishing there.
