Since last fall Keith and I have been working on our additional place at Lake Texoma. This weekend was our first really big summer get together and it was with Keith’s best friend’s daughters and some of their friends. There were 10 of them plus Keith and me.
Saturday morning there was threatening weather but, thankfully, it never came. It turned out to be a beautiful day and I took lots and lots of photos of the everyone having fun at the lake.

After the group ate lunch, several of them took advantage of the time to enjoy another one of their pasttimes…reading a book.
Besides lots of water fun there were two interesting things that happened.
We saw a blue heron swoop down in the water and get a fish and then swallow it whole! I captured the photo just before the heron turned the fish so that it went into his mouth head first. You could see the shape of the fish as it moved down the heron’s long neck. It happened so quickly and I was so surprised that I just stared and didn’t take a photo of it.
As we were idling on the lake, a plane was flying across the water just a bit over head and when he got closer he circled our boat and waved! It was at that point that we realized it was an open cockpit. I rapidly took a picture and, all things considered, it’s fairly decent.
Two people went home Saturday night then Sunday me and one other person stayed at the house while the remaining 7 enjoyed another day on the lake.
It was a great weekend and it was wonderful to have 2 places for this size group. Here’s hoping they’ll be back.
