Oh, gosh, I need about a week of really crummy weather to catch up here! I was, as I mentioned, holding back to keep the City of Water Day post on top (that event went very nicely and at least one person came due to my social media efforts - always fun to meet somebody you've been Facebook friends with for a long time!), but now I'm feeling seriously backlogged (backblogged?). I have unshared pix going back 3 weekends now, eek, and we've got the insanely photogenic annual Orient Point trip coming up next weekend!
July 4th weekend was fantastic; there was the fireworks party at Victoria and Steve's - I shared my best fireworks pictures but I was going to do an Empire State Building selection too, with those new LED lights they put on quite a show - here's one:
And then I spent both Saturday and Sunday at the club. Saturday I sort of accidentally-on-purpose "forgot" my camera, thinking of all the backlog from the weekend before - but we had a lovely club paddle to Spring Creek, where we got deeper into the marsh than I think I've been before, followed by hot dogs and burgers and wine (oh my) back at the club. Lovely day out there - a little on the breezy side, with the wind against us on the homeward-bound leg, but that just made the burgers taste that much better.
Sunday was the 2nd Sailing Committee cruise of the 2014 season and for that, I did bring my camera. I love this old boat on Ruffle Bar, I always feel like I could post it and claim that it's somewhere in the Caribbean - although in this shot if a person looks closely there's a dead giveaway (click on the photo for a detail view).
