Then the sun warmed things up alot and off came the sweater.
We pulled the boat into a cove to get out of the wind and dropped the anchor and ate our lunch I had packed of sandwiches and chips. It was so peaceful and serene.....ahhhh
We rented the boat for 4 hours and it went so fast. I could have spent 4 more out there. There is just something so relaxing about being on the water. We have been reading and studying up on the inflatable kayaks by Sea Eagle and we finally took the plunge and ordered it yesterday. It would be mainly for places like the above picture. There were people kayaking out in the middle and they were bobbling more that anything. It didn't look all that fun to me.
After we ate lunch we drove over to the boat ramp at Hardin Ridge to dock and go to the restroom. They have a floating dock and there was no way Cooper was walking on it. Art had to carry him. Effie jumped off onto it walked up pottied, and then ran back down and jumped on the boat herself. She was ready for more sailing. I think she could have gone 4 more hours too.
After we turned the boat back in we drove around the campground that is in the State Recreational Area called Paynetown. We were driving and then came to this road block...
|"Cleo, would you hurry and pick out a site before we get run over by a car."|
|"Now Calvin, stopped that crooked neck posture it will not make me go any faster."|
|"Oh Cal, I think this is the spot. Close to the lake, no people around, plenty of green grass to eat."|
|"Cleo!!! Read the sign." "OH no we have to start all over." " Don't think I like that fire grate either, gives me the creeps."|
The sun was so pretty and the more it went down the prettier the sky became.
And then my favorite one of all tonight.....
|Isn't it amazing how the sky just gets so dramatic as the sun sets.|
Boy was she keeping an eye on us.
That is all tonight from Hardin Ridge. Hope you enjoyed our little boat adventure and Cooper has asked no one please make fun of him. Effie is doing enough of that! :)
