away for a few days

August 5, 2010

The girls and I went on a little excursion for a few days. The men of the house have been off hiking the trails of Yosemite National Park. So we went off and had a little fun of our own. We packed our bikes, a cooler, some clothes, little else and accepted an invitation to join my sister-in-law at a condo on Middle Bass Island.

Fun seemed to find us right away…

Yet after everyone else was asleep, I found myself unable to sleep looking out the window wondering how my husband was doing 2,200 miles away

We lounged, and took in our surroundings…

We explored Middle Bass island and rode the Sonny-S to visit Put-in-Bay…

We were oh so happy to come back to the start of our trip to the islands.

Thankfully my camera caught the images from our adventures. I know I could not put into words all that we did and saw. The rest of the Riddle clan is due back tomorrow. I’m excited to hear of their adventures, see the photos that Mr. Riddle took and you can be sure I’ll share them here with you.

Until next time,
~Victoria

    I think that shot of Kay and The Monster on the ferry is my favorite shot of yours of all time. It’s now my desktop background at work. ;)

      Thanks Brooke!
      Yes she did. The girls loved riding on the boats. Until they had done it more than a few times. Then they loved everything else. :)
