We had a really nice sail yesterday evening. The wind was light (8-10) - but it was awesome just being out with the wife and kids.

We anchored just off "Sometimes Islands". These only appear when the lake gets low - and it's now so low that these islands are becoming a peninsula. It's still not quite as bad as it was last year - but it's getting close. 100+ temps and no rain are taking their toll.

Once they got the anchor set, I threw all of them off the boat...


And then settled in for a nice cold beer...


At that point, I thought I'd conquered the missus and the little punks, until I look aft and spotted another one sneaking up on me...


So, off he went too...


With the boat all to myself, I pulled up the anchor and left them all on Sometimes Island...


I assured them they'd be perfectly safe until monsoon season. I'll probably go get them after work today.

Heh-heh.

(PS - These photos were taken in the water with an iPhone in an AquaBox case. It does distort and blur the images somewhat - but not too bad. It would not take photos underwater through. Don't know why. Phone survived it just fine.)
