Took the English people out for their last day of skiing and kneeboarding. Both Terry and Chloe did get up on the HO, Terry for much longer. He was so very happy with himself for FINALLY being able to ski. Once they had their fill of skiing they then went out on the wakeboard.

As they were gone, I happen to think, “Hum, if something happens to Terry I’m not so sure Thelma would know how to get back to the house.” Just as I prepared to go look for them, they returned. Terry wanted to go out on the 3-d so we took the fishing boat out to watch Terry play. I had hoped we could make a decent wake for him to play around in. Not so much.

Journey: Triple L Estate – Stoney’s, Broomes Island – Triple L Estate

Engine Hrs: 503.2 – 504.1 Time: 5:20 pm – 9:40 pm
Conditions: a bit rough
Vessel: Chaparral 260 SSi Bowrider

Tonight we had cornhole league. I worried the river might be too rough for the English people… then I thought, “It will be a LOT less rough than the English Channel.” Before leaving the house, I told Chloe she needs to end her vacation the same way she started – with three orange crushes. Unfortunately, she did not agree. That’s ok, her parents made up for her lack of interest in crushes.

Since it’s Terry and Thelma’s last night, we decided to let them play all our games. We had a great time, and I think they did, too. (video of Terry “playing”)

As usual, we all wore our vests on the way home. I also wore a sweatshirt with the hood tied tight around my head.
