Seaplane on Long Lake
We got up and decided to head to Buttermilk Falls today. We took these pictures on our way there. We stopped at Long Lake for a quick lunch.
We will be posting Buttermilk Falls next time.

Chris was trying something new on the camera. It turned out pretty cool in this picture. I love how it looks like the water is running.

Well guess what he pulled out?.....
We have no idea how that got into this drain.
It has been covered since we moved in 11 years ago. Chris went to The Home Depot and bought some main line cleaner. He poured a whole gallon down the drain and it seemed to be working.
Chris was in the basement and I ran upstairs to use the bathroom. When I went back down to see if he needed help, the basement floor was covered with water. Those of you that know Chris know that he usually can fix just about anything. When he can't it drives him crazy to have to pay someone else to fix it. I think that runs in his family. So we called both of our parents to see if they could recommend a plumber. We called the one that my mom uses. He told us that it sounded like our main sewer drain was blocked. He was leaving town for a week and told us to just call Roto-Rooter.
We made an appointment for today at 2:00pm and he showed up right around 2:00. He brought a huge electric snake down to the basement and after about 30 minutes the pipe was clear. He said that there were tree roots growing in the sewer drain about 30 feet out from the house. He ran the snake out to about 110 feet from the house to make sure it was clean out to the city sewer. Their work is guaranteed for a year. If it happens again within a year, they will come and clean it again for free.

Ann over at A Mothers Minute has tagged me!
Seven Random or Weird things about me!
Let's see what I can come up with!
1. I don't go anywhere without a camera.
2. I hate to drive. I would rather have my husband drive. I'm a looker. I want to see the view.
3. I use a Neti-Pot every night before I go to bed.
4. I haven't ever seen any of the Star Wars movies, and don't plan to.
5. I don't like Diet Pepsi from a can. I only like it from a bottle.
6. I can't stand it when my routine gets screwed up.
7. I love NASCAR. It's not just a sport, it's an obsession.

Laurie saw these mushrooms on one of the trees. They were the same kind that her Dad used to draw on. Click HERE if you missed that post. When she held the camera up to take the pictures, the sun poked through the tree tops and made the rainbow in the picture. She said "Dad's here".
As we started to hike again after lunch, we heard a loud creaking sound followed by the sound of tree branches breaking. We were both looking for an animal running at us. No animals, just this huge pine tree. It wasn't windy or anything, but it just fell over about 50 yards behind us.
Luckily, it fell in the other direction because we didn't realize what happened until the ground shook. Both of our hearts were racing at this point. We took the 1.3 mile ridge trail back out and tried to relax a little.
More vacation posts to follow.
