A BeaWootiful Day on the water

Here we are, on my boat, out for a glorious ride... 
 This is how the gulf of Mexico should look without any gooey black stuff on it.
. (hopefully it will stay this way)

We anchored the boat out on a sand bar, and others joined us.

Looking fur a swim.

Weeeee! nice and cool!
Ummm Mom? I can't touch the bottom!

Help!   Who is this strange Man??
 Look at me I am swimming.... 
 Back to my boat fur a rest...
watching the humans play in the water...
Even Scampi got wet, although he did not seem too happy about it.

Tired, time for a wash ....

And a nice ride back to the Marina...

Wow, I am beginning to see that this jumping into the water business might not be so very bad after all!
Toodle pip!

We like to go out to a sandbar near Egmont Key, it's about an hour from our house in the Whaler. We go out the bay and under the Sunshine Skyway and hang a bit of a left. We like to run down to Anna Maria Island sometimes just for funs. But not right now, the storm season has begun and somebody HATES getting her ears wet. One of the 2 SHE's in the boat. The Mr. likes to go to Egmont Key. That's like dead ahead out of the mouth of the bay almost. We've never gone down to Sareysoatie...too far in an open Whaler. Maybe if we took the boat down to Anna Maria and stayed for a week we could splore about further south. Mostly we just putter about on the bay. Small boat, small trips.

Hope yer Momma is getting better everyday. Keep a close watch over her.

sniffies,
Bonnie

I hope your water stays oil free!

We just got our life jackets yesterday. Steve doesn't think he can move in it. You should have seen his face!

You make swimming look soooo fun, but I don't think mom will ever be able to get me in the water! I do love your pink life jacket! :)

Hope your mom is getting better! I know you are taking great care of her! :)
