Boat ride

It's summertime in the High Desert. Last night we went to Lake Billy Chinook to meet some friends who were here camping, boating and having fun.

Nash....really not wanting to get out of the water!

Doug showing off his flip flops with built in bottle opener....I kid you not.

Somehow Elyse has grown up to be 15 already....how did this happen?

My friend Julie...as gorgeous as ever

Riding back to the marina


Fun!

Sounds like a great day and some really nice pictures..When you said about growing up and how did it happen so fast..I tell my husband all the time, "Life is but a blink"..I don't know where the time went.

Oh that is so much better than a shoe phone. A heck of a lot more useful & practical. Looks like a really fun day. You two are always having so much fun :)

Beautiful photos of Lake Billy Chinook! We really need to go check that out! I can't believe we've lived in this area for nearly five years and haven't been there yet! LOL

Hi, Diva, thanks for popping by. We are going to Dorset, southern coast of England. Gorgeous Dorset, I must add. We are part of a group that is very environmentally active and friendly and therefore participate in various activities related to nature, conservation and the like.

Your pics are so beautiful, I hope to bring a truckload like that in a week when we return.

Greetings from London.

Lake Billy Chinook... I'm making a note of that... we are still learning the lakes around here, and looking for boat friendly places to camp.

Looks like you had a beautiful day on the lake... Yay!!

That water looks amazing...Lake Erie (where I live) does NOT look like that...sigh.

Flip flops with a built-in bottle opener? Awesome. I bet Jimmy Buffett needs some.

And what a beautiful landscape!
