Boating

Last year, at the end of the season, we bought  a  used pontoon boat. What turned out to be a good deal became a money pit as we could not get it to run properly. Finally we thought we had it fixed just before it was time to take it out for the season. A few weeks ago we put it in and took it out for a spin. It died in the middle of the lake. We got a tow to shore and luckily my husband figured out the gas hose clip was not in all the way. So it was just a minor problem and should now be fine. We went out for another spin and it was such a nice ride.

I used this sketch from SketchnScrap


And this inspiration from Creativeembellishments. This boat is so much fun to just putz along the lake. I love listening to the lapping water and sticking my hand in the spray. The water was my inspiration and the colors of the sky.
