It has been some 6 weeks since we brought the pontoon home from winter storage and got it all set up on the lift. Since then we have not had an opportunity to take it out for a ride. The high water has been the main reason and before that was not so great weather for boat rides. But, this evening after supper we went out for a nice ride around the lakes. Pat spent a couple hours this afternoon getting the pontoon all cleaned up and while doing that discovered the water had gone down enough so that we could get the pontoon off the lift. It was a nice ride and the pictures below are of a couple things we saw along the way. We didn't take any pictures of all the docks we saw that were still under water and all the empty boat lifts or the ones with boats on them that couldn't be gotten off. There will be more rides now, weather permitting.
This first one is of the Captain of the boat, me, ha, ha.
This one is of an airplane that we saw on the lakes last summer for the first time. It is back again, but parked in a place where it is protected from the wind and high water.
Another picture of the airplane.
We see Pelicans on the lakes quite often. This group was in a different place from where we normally see them. The group has also grown in size from last summer.
