Just when I thought Summer was on its way out…I should have known better than to get my hopes up! I spent the weekend trying to stay cool at my cousins’ shack, paddling around in the river with my family.
Even though these particular cousins have always been my closest family, it’s only in the last few years that I’ve really started to spend a lot of time with them. Being an only child, having that kind of family feeling is still kind of a novel concept for me, and I really get a kick out of that whole family bonding thing that a lot of people probably take for granted.
Anyway, I still didn’t learn to waterski this time…it just doesn’t have enough appeal for me to risk going out there and embarrassing myself by half drowning trying to learn…but I did spend a little time on the boat taking photos!
My cuz is getting pretty good, I’ve gotta admit. He went out for one particularly good ski late in the afternoon and the light was just brilliant!
Despite what these photos imply, Menzel is actually a decent wakeboarder. I just find the stack shots more interesting
My Aunt Jacki…her ability to avoid/foil photos is legendary, but the 70-200 makes life easier. Anyway, I like a challenge!
