At the Lake

We are so happy we moved from the city and got a house lakefront at Lake of the Ozarks just over two years ago.   Even though I have started calling this place "The Money Pit"  with house updates, dock expansion,  boat fixes, seawall big repair, and the list goes on.    But we stop everything else and
get up and go out on a morning boat ride and the sun hits my face, the waves lure me to relaxation, nothing is better.    Since we live on the lake, first of the morning weekdays are the best because there is so little boat traffic compared to the weekends when all the tourists are here.  These pictures were taken on a Thursday early morning boat ride.  It seems I'm always taking selfies when out on the boat.

I'm entering this layout in two challenges.    A sketch challenge and a prompt challenge.

"SKETCHES N THYME"  had this great sketch challenge #388

Then in using the sketches I picked these pictures so I could enter the September
"SCRAP CHALLENGE YOURSELF" #69  Sunrise/Sunset  This was an sunrise boat ride.
