BOATING ON THE LAKE!

Friday evening was extra special because my youngest DD took me on a tour of the lake they live next to... the 2 1/2 hour tour was all by water; in their new BOAT! It was so wonderful. We saw many different kinds of birds, some ducks and a few other boaters. Laura piloted this boat like an ol' salt! Gosh she's good at it. Backed it straight out of the slip and did some fancy maneuvers. I felt so safe in her care.  While on the boat I was able to get a few good pictures, but the first two are the views from her backyard:

Exiting the slip. Laura is good at this!


They have several pairs of swans that live on their Lake year 'round

Rippin back to docks b4 sun goes down - new running-lights aren't hooked up yet


Their boat on the right. We docked just as the sky lit up all orange & pink. Pretty!
Sky turned brilliant just after we docked and tied up! Nature provided a spectacular show!!! Again, this is a backyard view. Nice.
Until next time. . . let's go stitch something!

Oh how fun and so relaxing too I'm sure. I swear that I could almost live on the water in a nice houseboat if it were equipped with all the modern conveniences, of course. And my own sewing room too on that boat. Is that really asking too much? LOL

That looks like a great boat and I'm sure will provide many fun times. That backyard view is gorgeous.
