Boat Bash!

Recently, my aunt and uncle invited us to a boat bash on Lake Maurepas (MAR-eh-PAW). It took about an hour to get there on my uncle's boat. Not knowing what to expect, I brought along my bff, Bertha (my camera). It was a beautiful, clear day. We listened to music playing from a platform as all types of boats and watercraft gathered 'round. They started off with classic rock, but as the day wore on, it changed to hip-hop. :( Surprisingly, there weren't any crazy shenanigans, just folks enjoying the weather and music. Something about floating on water is very relaxing, I must say.

Boat name: PARR-T


Blue men


Notice the "HOT" BOUDIN sign. Also, the people floating
under the stage is funny to me. Sorry about the big bag of trash,
but we've gotta keep our rivers clean!

Don't they look like they're posing? 


This is my aunt and uncle's dog, Smoke, enjoying a rawhide on their deck.
This is one of the sweetest dogs EVER! But most goldens are known for their good natures.
We only stayed a couple of hours because the air conditioner inside our boat wasn't working and being on deck was BRUTAL. Stories of brain eating amoebas killed any desire I might've had to cool off in the water. Have a safe and happy weekend, everyone!

Oh Smoke is so beautiful. I have never seen bluemen swimming. Posing cute guys well I have nothing to say about that:)
Love all the photos it was so worth suffering in the heat for:)
Take care Hug B

the blue men stole the show :)

Looks like a whole lot of fun being had out there. I'm guessing that in the lake waters, one doesn't have to worry about gators? When I think of the great state of Louisiana and WATER, I can only think of gators! I'm with you...I don't do good in the heat and especially Brutal heat temps, so I'm pretty sure I would have been heading in as well...
Enjoy your Friday..

Between the blue men and the amoebas I am surprised you stayed as long as you did but hey you can't be rude....It does look like you had fun on the boat...the shots are awesome....

Now that's some kind of boat!! WOW!! Too much fun!! Those blue guys were funny!!
As long as the water is cold - you're fine!! Just don't swim in luke warm water unless it's in your bathtub!

I have heard of those amoebas.

I used to have a golden. I still miss that dog...even though its been 7 1/2 years since he lost his battle with cancer.

Beautiful pics!

Looks like a bash! Beautiful image of Smoke (I lost my Golden granddarling in August).

Those Blue Men were hilarious. Were they real people or were they mannequins? I couldn't quite tell. They looked like the real thing, but if they were, they must have been super hot! I'm with you on the brain eating amoebas, too. That's crazy stuff! Just wanted to thank you for visiting my page and commenting. I'm glad I came to visit yours. Loved Smoke and the sunset photos especially!

I've never heard of a boat bash...obviously we don't boat in the right state! Fun day (too bad it was so hot though). Love the blue men.

Kathy said...

You and Bertha make everything and everyone look delightful. I would have risked the brain-eating amoeba for a closer look at those two hunks!

Terri Buster said...

I keep hearing those stories too- I thought it was just pond water, but last week it happened at a school, from the drinking water. I like your last shot best- Smoke is a beautiful dog!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Those two may look like they're posing...but OH the eye candy!!! Delicious.

Smoke's photo is awesome too. But wait...let me scroll up one more time to the centerfold. Wowzers.

EG CameraGirl said...

Smoke DOES look like a sweetie! The weather looks perfect but if it was HOT I guess it wasn't. ;)

Carletta said...

That looks like a lot of fun!
I agree with Anni - your posers - definite eye candy. :)
A beautiful shot of Smoke! What pretty eyes.

The day must be very wonderful especially with the presence of the"Blue Men" and other funny stuffs.

eileeninmd said...

The boat bash looks like fun! The amoebas sound creepy. Smoke is a real sweetie, I love Goldens! Fun photos, thanks for sharing. Have a happy day and week ahead!

Rosie Grey said...

This looks like a gorgeous day with a lot of fun!
Have a wonderful Sunday, Gail!

Linda R said...

Looks like everyone was having fun. Reminds me of when I was younger and I would go out on my parents boat. Those were the days...

Hugs~

Linda said...

It did look like a fun party, but I can imagine the Louisiana heat. Those brain-eating amoebas are indeed something to be cautious about. This was a great set of photos from the party, but my favorite of all is the one of Smoke. What a face! It looks as if he's looking right at me from the picture.

Tricia said...

Looks like a good time! Glad you steered clear of getting in the water :)

Stephanie said...

Fabulous photos, Gail! Looks like great fun. Hugs!

Kerry said...

Yeah stay away from brain-eating amoebas, please. And keep that beautiful golden away from them too:)
