December 28, 2016 - Boating with the kids

Kristie, Isabelle and Sadie were able to visit Patty for Christmas this year, and while they kept themselves busy with lots of stuff, I was able to get them out on my boat for one day. My sister, Doris, and Patty's sister Debbie and her daughter, Dani, were able to go along as well. The water is pretty cold for around here at about 68 degrees, but that didn't keep us from splashing around in it.

There is an island just off the Intracoastal Waterway that was perfect for our adventure. I used a GoPro camera, that comes with a waterproof housing for the video. Most of the time the housing was on the camera to prevent it from being splashed, and this muted the audio. However, there were times that I removed the housing and you can hear what was happening.

Watch the video to see what a good time we had. (While watching this video, I notice that it is quite shakey. I tried to use the software to stabilize it, but in the end, it is what it is - an old guy with a handheld little camera.)
