Boating is a fantastic way to enjoy the outdoors and your friends! Saturday I had another fun day in Cincinnati on the Ohio River on my friend April’s boat. She invited four of us women friends and five other boats ended up tying up to us…so we had a party! Here’s Captain April…
Sometimes I get bored with boating, especially if I can’t ski…so I stay entertained by taking photographs and dancing. I really liked this candid shot of Cindy and April. April’s bathing suit is so cool…I love the neon and loopy fabric!
I don’t remember what Dee was cracking up about…but I love to see her smile.
Gina really enjoyed herself too!
I’m taking a “selfie” shot!
I captured some cool angled photos. These are a couple of our “guy” friends…Ron and Jeff.
Unfortunately, the river was still a little high, fast and choppy to ski. We passed under this bridge on our way to the Riverbend Music Center area where we dropped anchor.
All of us ladies waved to the Watercraft patrol.
Ron’s a good dancer…
Another friend…Frank. Notice the reflection in his glasses.
There was a pop-up storm nearby that fortunately didn’t hit us. I liked the way the plane was flying towards it…
When it’s 90 degrees outside, you definitely want to get wet. The current was really fast and I noticed the sun casting it’s glow on the water where Ron was swimming back to the boat. I dove in once and for the first time in over twenty years of boating on the river was a bit concerned that I wouldn’t be able to swim back against the current. But, I dug in and swam for my life!
This sea doo or wave runner looked cool gliding through the sparkling water…
Back at the Four Seasons Marina, this sail boat was very colorful…
I love that my friends love to have fun! We’re all in our forties and fifties, either with grown children or no children and we’re having the time of our lives!
