The water was warm (75degrees) but the weather was kind of chilly for boating. We had wet-suits so it wasn't that cold.
We were out on the lake at about 2:30 and boated until 4:30. We would have gone longer but it started to rain. Now, you might be thinking "Oh, come on! What's a little rain when you're already wet?"(or maybe you're not but that's beside the point...:-) ). But this wasn't any old rain, it was one of those drenching downpours that comes with thunder-storms. It was kind of cool to see the "wall" of rain come closer and closer as we boated. They were those huge fast-falling raindrops that sting your face when you're going 25 mph. Heehee...it was an awesome adventure. We got drenched just packing everything up. That was probably the most exciting part.
That or holding on with frozen fingers for dear life as you nearly get flung into the murky shark-infested waters. Actually I got flung off once or twice and lost a sandal to a Great-White as I wrestled to keep him from biting off my leg. Too bad you missed it. I finally gave him such a whopper on the nose that he was content to just eat my sandal.
Anyway here are some pictures-
So, the moral of the story is- go enjoy the outdoors, praise God, and watch out for Great-Whites. Cha-ching.
