Taken from one of our forays to the lake. We’ve only missed one day this week, Wednesday, because we had to go to town for groceries. Every other day, the boys and I have loaded up into the 2000 Saturn Station Wagon ATV, and headed for the gnarly shores of Lake Texoma. We have played “monkey in the middle,” the “submarine game,” many rounds of mud ball fights with me declaring them off limits, and lots of swimming.
Here is the shot of the roots of the tree on the edge of the water. It’s a favorite spot on the lake because not only can I sit in the shade while watching the boys, I plant my chair in the water to stay cool, while reading a good book. So far this summer, I’ve read a John Grisham novel, and now Fighting the Good Fight: A Brief History of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. You may think it boring, but I’m fascinated by it and rejoice at the steadfastness of those in the OPC.
Heidi and I went walking down by the lake after a recent thunder storm. We needed to get out of the house and one of my favorite past times is walking down to the lake and back.
The dark clouds are the storm that had blown through.
Here is a color rendition.
The following is one of my favorite self portraits in a long time. Of course, it just so happens to include my lovely wife and Jacqui too.
Rob and Jacquie took us out on their boat along with Lloyd and Debby, in order to help us appreciate the beauty of Lake Texoma, and the size. The lake is huge. The lake is beautiful. The lake has a lot to see and do. But the best part of the day was sitting in the middle of the lake, drifting, while watching the sunset and enjoying the company.
Living a quarter mile from Lake Texoma, my boys and I ventured down there last Saturday to go exploring. We found the water, the beach, the forrest and a fossil or two. Here are a few of the shots from our trip.
Not exactly a beach, but there were patches of sand here and there.
