Here is the most pathetic post ever. This evening we thought our son would be using the truck for a job. Turns out the contractor wasn't quite ready for him yet so we could take the boat out after all. As I mentioned before, the reservoir is just 10 minutes away so the girls threw on their swimsuits and we were quickly out the door. We were putting into the water at 7pm and it was gorgeous.
I loaded the camera, because that's what I do (As a mama! You thought I meant as a blogger didn't you?). I was excited to have this photo opportunity as the girls would be tubing and I knew the light would be amazing!
So, as soon as I got out of the truck, I began snapping... and this is all I got. The battery needed to be recharged.
I considered describing the amazing shots I missed. The way the speed of the boat cut the wake and the brightly colored tube would almost catch air as it careened back and forth behind it. The way ponytails flew, and so did the spray. The way you had faceted water sparkling as far as the eye could see and only black silhouettes of girls and tube when riding away from the sun, me always looking back into it to keep my eye on the daredevils. Then when we turned around and they were looking into the sun, every nuance was in sharp focus... for me, not the camera. Aargh! I thought about telling you all that, but then decided against it. The really hot weather hasn't even gotten here yet. There will be many more perfect evenings on the lake and as they say... A picture's worth a thousand words. So next time... so long as dumb-dumb remembers to charge the battery!
