There had been a rainstorm (complete with hail) right when we got to the lake. The water was eerily calm by the time Will and McIver got down to the dock.
His first catch with the new rod. It turned out that the fish let go before McIver reeled it all the way in, but that did not dampen McIver's delight.
After dinner, we went out for a little sunset cruise. We only saw two other boats on the lake so we pretty much had the whole thing to ourselves. Tex is a big fan of the pontoon boat.
This is what I get when I ask him to look AT the camera. Gotta love that sweet face and those big eyes! (You can't really tell from the picture, but he's a snaggle-tooth again. He lost his other front tooth last time we were at the lake.)
A boy and his dog - heading toward Bomb Island, McIver's favorite place on the lake.
Will let McIver take the wheel - he got us all the way back to our cove, then let Will take over the docking of the boat.
