Bliss on the water

One perfect day. One sparkly, sunshine-filled day.

It could be disaster. Put five kids and five adults from three generations on a small boat for an extended period of time. It could be hell. Or heaven.

It was heaven.

We sent the kids out on the air mattress...then shouted after them to ask if they had their Nexus cards, since they were drifted across the border. They panicked. The adults laughed. A good time was had by all (adults).

We tried to catch crab with a funky pull-up trap. We had a small difference of opinion on how to most effectively operate the trap...

This picture is Sheila, my Dad and Lindsay all peering over the side and debating the technique. No consensus was reached. 

And then...because it was a special day of warm sun and great friends...we did the unthinkable (at least for me). We jumped off the roof of the boat as one big group.

Sheila and Lindsay even went in their clothes! Now that is commitment. I couldn't NOT go in when they were so keen.

It was so worth it.

Perfection in one day.
