Caravan Sonnet: first summer boat ride

first summer boat ride

Happy July 1st friends! A couple of weeks ago the weather turned a little warmer and we were were able to embark on our first boat ride of the season! Even though it was a bit cool it was lovely and we decided that we would just get bundled up to go out for our first ride. (As some of you know our "old" boat that I had grown up with was "fatally" damaged approximately seven years ago and we had been praying about the right boat for several years. Two summers ago the Lord provided this boat and we are extremely grateful for this gift!)
It was Ba's first trip out in this boat and she was very excited about it!
It was a lot warmer then we expected but we were so excited to be out on the water!
Did I mention how absolutely gorgeous it was? SO pretty! The beauty of this favorite lake of mine astounds me everyday!
And just as we went zooming by this beautiful view...
and were appreciating the beauty... the motor died. After about a 5 minute ride! I can't help but giggle because we were going full speed and all of a sudden... nothing! (And yes, we were without a paddle... hahaha you would think that we had never been on the lake before!) Thankfully we had an incredibly kind stranger tow us back to the launching site while we appreciated the view at a much slower pace. *smiles*
Thankfully there was nothing seriously wrong with the boat and we have since enjoyed less dramatic rides! *hahaha* Happy Tuesday friends!
