River Trip, Day 2

The two older dudes both had an early online class.  Plus Monday morning River water levels in the fall are pretty low, so there was no rush to get on the water (despite the lure of glassy water skiing conditions).  orange county family vacation photographer-1Day two was every bit as hot as day one.  And the boat was feeling a teensy bit cramped (understatement, from the perspective of a slightly clautrophobic passenger) – 5 humans, 1 big dog, food cooler, ski gear, one smallish shade from which to escape the sun …  So this time-out on the sand bar felt kinda wonderful.  Dog Dude was certainly appreciative of the ability to stretch his legs (understatement, again).stick orange county family vacation photographer-2stick2orange county family vacation photographer-3 orange county family vacation photographer-4 orange county family vacation photographer-5 orange county family vacation photographer-6 orange county family vacation photographer-7 orange county family vacation photographer-8 orange county family vacation photographer-9 orange county family vacation photographer-11orange county family vacation photographer-10orange county family vacation photographer-12orange county family vacation photographer-14orange county family vacation photographer-15

Day 2 looked pretty fabulous. And look at you on your ski run, hot stuff! What a great place to stretch out a bit and relax. Dog Dude looks like he enjoyed himself too.

Wow, blown away by the beauty of the area AND your skiing abilities. I love the clarity of the water. I miss the warm weather too.

That river looks so wonderful. And you are an awesome skier!! I haven't skied since I was in highschool. I do believe it would be laughable if I were to try again now. :)
