Water Adventure!

I finished the clam shell quilt!  Once I got started, I just didn't want to stop! 
It needs its binding which I will get to soon.
I loaded up the next quilt in the queue, the tumbler block. 
The boat called to us today.  It's been a long time since we took it out on our waterways .
I was thrilled that the lake was smooth as glass!
This means that it isn't a back breaking ride for me! 
It was just beautiful out for the ride;  the water was in the 90's and the air 100F-yes, it is hot out but on the boat, you make a nice breeze so you don't feel the heat so much! 
The water line is down about a foot from its usual depth.
We saw one gator on a log near shore and one in the middle of the St Johns but not any others.
I couldn't get a pic of either!  Sorry. 
We docked at the pier at Corky Bells' for lunch.
It was so hot outside, we opted for a break in the air conditioning!
Until next time, so long to our fav fine dining destination! 
The clouds were all low and ran on into the horizon-I'm sure we could see a hundred miles of clouds!
We came home and cooled off in the pool.  There were several of these newly hatched babies-he is barely 2" long!  
The cats were a bit too interested in them!
Run, lizard, run!
It was a good day to visit the hydro life!

  1. Looks like a fine day to be out on the water. I could watch water roll off behind a boat for hours. The wake keeps me VERY amused.
