Continuing summary of some super summer activities

Don't you love my tongue twisters?  Anyway, here's more of what we've been up to the last month or so.

Upper Hiwassee on a foggy day

Playing in Lake Ocoee (Parksville to some)

St. Joseph's lighthouse on Lake Michigan

The waves were large on the right and washed over several times. The boys had to jump up the pole to avoid getting their shoes wet.

Braving the frigid waters on Sunday (12th August)
D and K, the happy couple

G, L and R with Uncle and Aunt from RSA

Some of us cousins with uncle E and aunty R.

The reason we were in Michigan - D and K's wedding - beautiful!

At the reception

Indiana Dunes

The canyons of Chicago.  It was foggy and darkish - even though only mid-afternoon

I see they transplanted Jo'burg's Ponte to Chicago!

First day of school.  Missed getting one of S.

One of S's creations on a rainy afternoon

A walking animal of some sort

D and S on the swinging bridge, upper Hiwassee.  We stayed for the siren and opening of the second gate before heading on down to kayak this section.

At the start of the section

Hitting a few minor bumps

We stopped at a teeny island

Shall I get in or not? (he had previously been snorkeling so was prolly a little cold)

At a w/e pathfinder convention at Cohutta.  

What?  I'm at the end of 19 photos?  Well, there are PLENTY more but that's a small snippet of our activities this past month.  Am working 20+ hours a week now which fills up the time very quickly!

Oh, all right! I'll add 3 more:
Some of the rain in our area on August 29


First Pathfinders for the year.  These are just Companions - we have about 30!
I'll put some gardening pics in the garden update posts.  Oooh, I hear thunder!  It's been incredibly hot and HUMID today so maybe the rain will cool it off and condense some of the moisture in the air! (and maybe not....)
