When Wood Meets Water

There is so much tranquility early in the morning.


Before all the humans are out, the sounds of nature are pretty awesome.  In this case and on this day (Saturday June 11, 2016) my hubby and I took a Sunrise boat cruise.

These shots were taken at 6AM.  My main goal on this day was to beat the crowds that would soon surround the Annual Classic and Wooden Boat Show.  I think I succeeded!

 Stay tuned for next years dates and pics.  See you around Town!

This is the Lake Arrowhead Wooden Boat Show! June 7-8, 2014

Occasionally I wake up before the sun is up (don’t ask me why, I have no idea)!!!  Today I got to the Lake Arrowhead Village at 7am to snap a few pictures before the crowds arrived.  I love this weekend at the village, the Wooden Boat and Car Show!  Here are some pictures I snapped this morning.

If you are trying to find something fun to do today… Get over to the village, look at some awesome old boats and cars and then enjoy the Eagles Tribute band tonight!  The Village is hopping, the weather is PERFECT and it is the place to be this weekend!  See you all there!



Ok so my husband was with me and he also helps with the pictures… Here’s me by the Queen dock!
