Spent a Week In Alexandria

August 18, 2007

stingray sunsetWe just got back to town after a week of boating in Alexandria, Minnesota. It’s our nearly yearly pilgrimage back to the lakes. This time with the new boat, we had an exceptionally good time. Lots of swimming and such and I even picked up a knee board which was a lot of fun until I dug the nose in crossing the wake at about 25MPH. My face was going much faster than that when it hit the water.

After recognizing that I still had the use of my legs and arms, I figured my nose must surely be broken, but the absence of blood proved that wrong. Turned out I was fine (apart from not being 17 years old for the last 20 years). My back is still sore, but I’m none worse for the wear.

I look forward to getting out a few more times during the boating season.

We stayed out on the water late on Sunday night with hopes of checking out the Perseid Meteor Shower, but the kids got tired before the show started. I caught about a dozen of them in the sky and reflected in the water as I cleaned up the boat and snapped on the cover.

I love the lake.
