So my family went to Stevens Creek Reservoir today to try our new rubber raft. The crazy thing is that we lost an oar blade after just five minutes on the water. The blade wasn't securely fastened to the handle and fell off. It's probably now somewhere on the bottom of the reservoir. Oh dear!
The good news is that we weren't stranded on the lake. Though were able to guide the raft to the shore with the other oar, the whole thing was a scary experience. One can only imagine how much worse it would be if we were on the high seas.
In any case, the plan is to go back to Stevens Creek County Park tomorrow. Let's hope the same thing won't happen again. :-)
