I Feel Like My Vacation Has Started!

My good friend Tracey and her husband got a new toy today!  I was fortunate enough to be invited along for the maiden voyage in their new boat!  What a great time we had, it was such a nice, typical summer day that I felt like my holidays had started (which they do on Friday!).

We went out to Mississippi Lake with Ed's new toy, it was HOT it was SUNNY it was a perfect day to be out on the lake!

 We cruised the lake...

We fished, and I caught my first fish in a few years, a nice big, smelly, slimy Pike! 


I found this ahem... boat???

 Tracey getting ready to try water skiing for the first time

 One of Tracey's attempts

I'm good to go!!!!  I have never tried it before either... my attempts were getting better but I never got up

 Ed got the closest to "up"

 I will be having some adventures in the upcoming weeks and definitely some time to work on a serious case of "stitcher's butt"

Great fun! It's much cooler out on the lake isn't it?
I never made it up on the skis but I did manage to get up on a board that my BIL had made to make things easier. Haven't tried again for years and I'm certain I'd never get up now!

Oh, I'm so jealous!! My parents had a boat when I was growing up and we would water ski all the time. I miss it so much! The trick is to lean back and let the boat pull you up. It's like getting off a (snow) ski lift, I think, because that's the only part of snow skiing I am good at, LOL! Of course, you have to have someone driving the boat who knows what they are doing, or it's impossible! (They have to accelerate properly....)

Waterskiing is tough for me. My center of gravity is really low, my arm strength is puny and my balance stinks, so I get pulled forward onto my face! LOL. Glad you had a great time.
