So yesterday, I shared some of my pictures from our wonderful duck boat adventure. Today I would like to show you some of the views from the water. If you have never done a duck boat tour, well first off what are you waiting for? They are expensive but they are tons of fun and you may even learn a little to boot. Actually you will probably learn a bunch of new things. Anyway, if you never done one, they enter the water by driving into the river near where the Sand and Gravel Company is so that is pretty cool to see for a different view since I've driven by that like forever. Actually the company has been in business since 1914 so it would be forever for me and all but the really, really old of us. Anyway when you drive into the river, there is a mirror on the underside of a bridge, similar to a parking mirror. I, of course, saw it and thought I could use it to make some cool pictures. I'll let you be the judge of whether or not I was successful:
Our guide let all the kids (and some adults) drive the duck when we were in the water so he invited my son up there to take a spin. Even though he was pretty reluctant and didn't steer at all, my son has told just about everybody that he drove the duck so I'm guessing that he liked it. And he wore the glasses, which was quite a sight to see.
As I mentioned before, it was absolutely pouring when we drove in to the city but we ended up having some great weather and a terrific sunset.
We also saw a wedding and I learned a valuable lesson, it is really hard to keep your camera steady in a boat that is doing a slow bob up and down:
And I also learned that taking your dog kayaking is apparently the thing to do on a beautiful Saturday evening:
When I showed my mom the picture below, she said, "Wow, it didn't even look that pretty in real life!" Which, I guess when I think about it, is kind of the point of this whole photography thing.
