Another Beautiful Day in Paradise. This was truly a perfect
day for blading. The sky was overcast, just a slight hint of a NE wind and an
adventurous blading/biking group. It's hard to believe but everyone got there no
later than 9:30 AM. We headed North towards Inverness by 9:38 AM.
back was 14 miles per Dee & Roy. Some people didn't go into
Inverness as far as other but did the Cooper State Park instead. We had 6 people
on bicycles. Barbara L (Herb's friend) and Stewart W
(Andrea's husband) joined us for the first time. Welcome!!!
Absentee bladers Willi and Joe came.
We Brunched/Lunched at the Shamrock as planned. They weren't that busy but we
arrived in groups that ended up with 3 tables. Their service was pretty good but
their food was great. Janice rated her lunch a 9.5 and Dee his a 9.
After lunch almost all headed to Andrea's and Stewart's
lake house for a wonderful afternoon of socializing and water skiing.
All relaxed on Andrea's and Stewart's large covered dock extending far out into
the lake. There were comfortable lounge chairs for all on the dock. A delightful
cool breeze blew, beer & drinks & snacks were plentiful and it was like being in
paradise. Naturally a few had to show their youthful spirits by water skiing. Peter and Bruce did some respectable skiing but Andrea
showed us how it was supposed to be done. Vivian and friend came
to the dock lake side party. Welcome Vivian and friend.
Andrea, Stewart, Jeff, Bruce, Herb and Barbara
L. came up Saturday
and slaved away
getting everything ready for Sundays skate and party. Thanks guys and gals.
A special thanks goes out to Andrea and
Stewart for the use of there lake side home and hospitality. A fantastic
