My Weekend

>> Wednesday, May 27, 2009

We made it home and had equal portions of work and fun. This is what a landsail looks like. You sit on the bottom, preferably with a helmet on and ride the wind across the playa. My husband tipped over on one ride (a.k.a. 'turtled' his sailer) so a helmet is preferable.
Wish so much wide open space the kids can ride their backs as far as they want. We tried to ride without the training wheels but no such luck this trip :)
Don't be misled by this photo. It might look a little lonely but behind me was a virtual city of people camping. We go out with a large crew and they invite their friends. With so many trailers and tents it does feel like a makeshift city at times.

We sailed, rode bike, looked for arrowheads, took the kids to the hot springs, sailed some more, cooked, washed, roasted marshmallows, had a 'few' cocktails with old friends, watched fireworks that people brought, played with glow wants, played with sparklers, told stories around the campfire, put the kids to bed and had a few more cocktails :), ate outside every meal and played, played, played.

We got home Monday afternoon and cleaned out the trailer, put everything away and got cleaned up for a baseball game. Is it really a three-day weekend during baseball season if you don't catch a game? Hope your weekends were fun too! Tomorrow, knitting.

Wow! That trip sounds absolutely fantastic. Whereabouts was that? It is completely different from my wheatfields prairie home!

it's surreal. Looks like an amazing trip! So totally different from the woods near here too.
