It was a beautiful day in Orlando
So we were invited to go boating with
an old friend and his girlfriend.
Jarrod just recently bought a boat
and needed to put hours on it before
its first checkup?
Apparently that's a rule?
We met Jarrod out in Oviedo
to pick up his boat.
Took a few selfies in the car to make sure the new camera
|Boat Makeup! Yes I put makeup on for boating...|
But the makeup has sunscreennn! So I tell myself it's acceptable.
This is their Snapchat filter...
That's all I have to say about Oviedo...
So we picked up Jarrod's boat!
When we took it around the other side of the barn to
wash it off, was where things got creepyyyy.
I know... I know - I'm being dramatic, but I felt like
I had just walked onto the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Movie set.
These pics don't do it justice.
After hosing down the boat, we headed
off to Cocoa to drop the boat in
the Banana River.
Don't worry - No alligators, just sharks.
This river is a mix of freshwater and
saltwater to make brackish water.
THANKFULLY we saw no sharks,
just a few dolphins :)
And we're off!
We passed by so many beautiful sail boats!
It makes me miss having one!
A couple hours in we stopped for lunch and a quick dip!
|That fin is a dolphin fin!|
Ricky and his orange. Thank goodness it was an orange, because
a banana on the Banana River is apparently bad luck!
Eventually, I got tired of being the one
taking all of the pictures, so
while the two lovebirds took a dip,
I forced Ricky to play photographer!
Let it be known - cheeky bottoms are in!
Tell your friends!
Wondering where to buy a cheeky bottom?
Liquid Ambition has a great
selection and they are Florida
The bottoms I have on are reversible! They have
adorable little pineapples on the other side!
After lunch we started the long treck back.
So I made myself comfortable... per usual.
We followed a boat named Liquid Vegas.
I imagine it had a slot machine inside.
If I had a boat named Liquid Vegas - I would
have a slot machine inside, along with a poker table.
I really got a kick out of all the different names
of the boats that were out there.
Some people have quite the imagination.
|Had to take a pic of this sail boat. It looks EXACTLY like the one my|
family had when I was growing up!
We passed by a boat graveyard.
Or I'd assume this was a boat graveyard.
There was SO much corrosion - and as someone who has
written a lesson on corrosion for ships, I know that it is ONE BIG
*WASH YOUR BOATS PEOPLE!
Saltwater corrodes and will cost you
tons of money in damages.
So I'd hope its a ships' graveyard.
It sounds much more exciting if its a graveyard anyways.
After about an hour of cruising on idle...
we finally made it back to dry land.
Sunday Funday Boatday was a grrrrrreat success!
Thanks Jarr Bear!
