Boat Races

Saturday our grandson and a few of his friends came up to our place to go watch the boat races. The races did not start on time. We later found out it was an out law race. It was an unsanctioned race yet the people that organized it wanted all the racers to pay $ 75.00 dollars entry fee . That was voted down by the majority, the races never really got off the water [ground so to speak].  There were a few boats that blew off a little steam and they were great .


The reason I’m writing this post is because of the photography.  When you go along on an outing like this you take your camera and take lots of pictures. The photos are usually not that significant, they are just good to look at and have memories. Once in awhile one of the photos speaks for it’s self.   I’m going to show a few of those pictures.

That is some rooster tail.

The next picture speaks for it self. I don’t have to say a single word about it.

That is a moment in time that I always talk about that probably will never be duplicated again.

We all had a good time even if the races never got started. Hope you enjoy the photos.


One thought on “Boat Races

  1. Looks like the place to be even if the races never started. My first husband loved boat races. We always watched the ones at Green Lake Park in Seattle, WA, where he lived as a child. They were very fast, and very dangerous. Glad you all had a great time. 🙂
