It’s been hot as hell in our house lately. Our air conditioner hasn’t worked since it was installed this past January and the repairman on Friday said that it would be another few days until someone else could come and fix the leaky valve. Urrr!
It was a beautiful day outside on Saturday, too hot to spend boiling alive inside, so we went to my parents for a boating excursion. My parents moved to the boonies and bought a boat last autumn, so this was our first time on their new boat out on the water.
It was Selena’s first time on a boat period and I was worried that she would spaz out like she does with practically everything else. But nope she was a trooper. She took to the water like a..well..like a spaniel to water. Silly me! I needn’t have worried! Here she is while we were putting the boat into the water:
And here she is soon after takeoff. She loves to be up front where the action is. My mom and I were quite relaxed in the front, it was so nice having the river spray in your face.
Here’s another one of Selena with the wind in her..ears. She reminds me of Falcor:
The river was pretty busy with boaters, water skiiers and even some crazy bastards who were jumping off a highway bridge into the water below. Smart. (not!) I took some photos of some of the boats rushing by:
Eventually we stopped somewhere quiet and swam outside. After hours of no air conditioning, it felt so frickin’ awesome! And then it was at this point that I lost my shirt. Literally. I took it off to go swimming in my bathing suit and it just disappeared. Weird.
Despite that minor set back, it was lots of fun. Maybe next time I’ll try water skiing. (Lets hope I don’t lose any more clothing then!)
