Good morning. I’m going to begin recapping some of our vacation. Our vacation is pretty similar from day to day, so I won’t be doing a daily recap. We typically wake up around 8, some before and after, and start with breakfast and just chatting around the table. There are usually a few of us heading out for runs, doing workouts, or going for walks also at this point. The water is always calm now and we had a kayak for the week that people would take out.
We love the slow start to the morning. Usually around 10 we start getting ready to head to the dock. The sunscreen goes on, the towels are picked up, and we head down. Like I said, some still sleep in, but most of us are down on the dock or beginning the sports with the boat!
Most days, the lunch supplies came out around noon, and we all wondered up when we wanted to to eat. The most we had was 39 people, and the least was 25. Our lunches were either leftovers, or sandwiches, almost every day. Sometimes we went right back to the dock, or sometimes we hung out on the deck just chatting. I know it sounds like we didn’t do much, but with all these people, we are always talking with new ones! New conversations come up, new stories are made, new smiles arise from the laughs that are always around.
I’ll share more of the special things we did throughout this week that strayed from the usual, but the afternoon was always spent out on the water! The younger kids stuck to mostly tubing, though they did start kneeboarding and my one cousin, Emma, skiied. Us older kids stuck to tubing, also (it’s just too fun!), along with surfing, skiing, and wakeboarding. We never had a shortage of time out on the water.
Today, I’m going to share some of the great pictures of us out on the water. We were so lucky that every day the weather was great! It rained Tuesday morning and they called for an entire day, but it was only until about 11 and then it was great. Though the temps were only in the 70s, some lower 80s, the sun more than made up for it!
And there’s the first recap! As you can tell, we took advantage of all the nice weather and made sure to really use the boat.
