Woooo-weee what a party! Well, we will NOT be doing that every weekend!
After the beer can race yesterday everyone jumped in the water and stayed there for quite a while – me, monte, joe, kurt, wally, lori, dave, marty, sue, wiz, david (new guy on b-dock w/ Misguided), robert, and his friends who own Hakuna Matata on a-dock). After last weekend’s very wake-y raftup spot in Cypress Creek, this weekend we’ve planned to have a party on B-dock and just sleep on our boats.
Doray, Tom and Judy joined us after the race and stayed til after sunset. Teri and Jim showed up around 11pm. We brought a blender, and lots of ice and margarita and pina colada fixins. Staying in the slip has its advantages. What a fun time. Dave left about 9 or so, when his teenage son called my cellphone looking for his parents… heh, heh (isn’t that supposed to be the other way around?! 🙂 )
We pulled out the coleman stove and made a bazillion quesadillas. Sue brought her legendary bean dip. We played iPod wars into the wee hours. There is a digital recording floating around somewhere of what may perhaps be the worst rendition of the happy birthday song ever. (Happy birthday Mark!) The security guard even stopped by about 2AM, wasn’t that nice of him? I think it was about 4AM when everyone headed back to their boats for the night.
I’m so glad we started working on that first wooden boat 13 years ago or so. We could never have known at the time that it would lead to us learning to sail, making a bigger sailboat, getting a slip at Yacht Harbor marina, landing on B-Dock, and meeting such fantastic people that are so easy to have fun with.
We packed up early this morning and got home about 10AM. On the way home we took a short detour up to Vintage Villas to see if I could get a shot of the lake from up there. This is a shot looking down on Arkansas Bend. In the distance you can see Hurst Cove, where our marina is.
Check out the clouds.
