Romantic Get-away!

For our 5 year anniversary, I planned a relaxing weekend at the lake. Although, there wasn't much that was romantic! Justin's family and many friends spent many years at Canadohta Lake. We decided to go there, and Justin was excited to see the place, after not being there for 15 years or so. He was disappointed to see they took out the go-kart track, but I think everything else was as he remembered. We found a campground online, reserved a site, and planned to scope out some cabins and cottages while we were there, for future trips. Our campground left a lot to be desired. We dubbed it the "ghetto". However, we made the best of it. We took a bike ride around the lake, exploring and working up an appetite for a gourmet meal.

Here's my wonderful Hubby, cooking me dinner on the open fire, with his Redneck Oven Mits (yes, they're blue knee high socks!). I called him a Boy Scout, and he informed me that he was never a Boy Scout, he was over-qualified to join!

We rented a Pontoon boat on Saturday, and spent a few hours cruising the lake, catching some rays, and trying to catch some fish. I was very successful with the rays part, but unfortunately my sunscreen didn't work. I have the burn lines to prove it! The fishing part didn't go so well, but we had fun anyway.

On our way to Canadohta, which is in Union City, PA, we passed the Crawford Co. Municipal Building, where apparently a local artist recycles the old road signs to decorate the grounds around the building. This was some really cool stuff, we even stopped to get a better look and take some pictures. Everything you see, is made out of old road signs. Amazing!

Despite the "ghetto", we had a great weekend. We talked to some people and scoped out some places to stay next time. The past 5 years have been amazing, not always a romantic get-away, but we always make the best of it!
