Blue Lake

Hullo... today we are going to the lake!! Oh excellent... it has been beary hot out and I'm looking forward to being by the water.

Ahhhh... so calm and peaceful...

Isn't that water a beautiful blue-green?

What's a little bear to do except lie back on some moss and admire the cloudless sky...

And maybe some thimbleberry bushes...

But then Mama asked if I wanted to go boating?? Cool!!! Let's go! Did we bring the kayak or the inflatable thingie?

Eh? What's this?? This is a Rubbermaid container... where's the boat.

What... do... you... mean... THIS... is... the... boat???????

Ahhhh!!!! No lifejacket?? No nothing?? Bear overboard! This thing is not balanced!

Yeah... see... this is what happens!

Honestly... doesn't everyone know that little bears are top heavy?

Oh sure... like this is going to work?

I don't have a good feeling about this!

Thanks for the back rest but the waves are... pushing me....

I can feel myself tipping!!!

Even wetter...

Whose idea was this??? Oh sure... Mama points at her partner. Like I believe that. Do other stuffies have this problem??

Hmmph... at least it's sunny.... I should dry out quickly... I hope!

  1. Perhaps you should try a tupperware brand item next time? Hopefully when they take you on the kayak's it's a less traumatizing event.

    1. Ahhh... Tupperware... you might be right. Or maybe the right size of container would help too. I think I am a landlubber bear...

  2. Well, you did want to cool off. But I agree, that craft doesn't seem very seaworthy. Who regulates these things?

    1. Beary unseaworthy, that is for sure. I do think there is a marine code that requires any seaworthy vessel to have: lifejackets, a whistle, a paddle, a bailing bucket and a rope. Clearly I need to educate some humans!

    2. And snacks. Don't forget snacks.

    3. Of course! I'll call them "Emergency Rations" so it sounds more official.

  3. We obviously need to write to Starbucks and demand that they create a boat for stuffies! We'd like luxury first class cabins on it too!

    1. Now that is a brilliant idea! Of course we would get First Class cabins - we would be the crew too - Captain, First Mate, Second Mate, Engineer - I'm sure we could figure something out.

  4. I hope they weren't trying to drown you or something awful........ I'd be watching Mama's partner very suspiciously from now on!!

    1. ***bear blinks followed by widening of the eyes***

      Noooo... do you think??? Maybe everybody just had a bit too much sun...

  5. Wow... good thing you didn't lose your hat in that lake! Did you have to wash your clothes after that?

    1. No... luckily it was clean lake water. But I do think some humans need to listen to little bears more often!

  6. I am so relieved you didn't flip entirely out of that boat and only got a little wet. Hope you dried out in the sun and didn't have to ride the Beariswheel on air fluff when you got home.

    1. Thanks Buttons! It was touch and go there for a moment. I dried out nicely in the sun but I'm drawing my claw in the sand after this... only real boats for me!

  7. I noticed you weren't provided with a life jacket. Luckily the water didn't look too deep and bears are known for their swimming ability.

    1. Nope... no life jacket. Mama was trying to tell me that my belt was an ultra-secret compact life preserver but... sometimes I think she makes this stuff up. Humans do that you know...
