Bloopers, Odds, & Ends

From a couple of weeks ago, Rob made a funny bloopers video of our kookin' wake SUP surf session...

Wake SUP Surfing from WindyWaters on Vimeo.

Speaking of bloopers, we're hitting the mountain bike trails a lot more these days.  Rob had a lot of speed going into a sharp turn and face planted hard.  Here is the result of his aggressive riding.....nice!

I always say now that its not a real mountain bike outing unless Rob bleeds.  

The lake continues to be my gym - more mountain biking, stand up paddling, and I got in a nice surprise slalom windsurf sesh on the lake...all in 24 hours this weekend.  My dad even surprised us and got out on a stand up paddle board with his grandkids, my sister, my brother-in-law, and I...there were 3 generations paddling all at once!

We've had absolutely beautiful weather the last several days and we've had family in town as well.  The sunsets have been is one from the other night out on the boat with two of my three sisters....

And its been the wild kingdom around here.  We have a den of 5 foxes living on the other end of our street behind an empty cul-de-sac that hasn't been developed yet.  We've seen them almost every day for the last few weeks...all at different times of the day.  I finally captured a couple of pics of these elusive creatures with my iPhone.  Until this den showed up, I would probably would see a fox once or twice a year usually very early in the morning.  These little guys have been out in the middle of the day and not immediately running away when they see us.  They've been more curious than scared of us and our dog.  I've noticed fewer rabbits hopping around here.

With great respect and admiration, I'm keeping up with all the other events going on from the great  early fall conditions on Hatteras Island to the AWT Pistol River event.  Looking forward to the AWT Hatteras stop in September.

Happy Fathers Day to all those fathers out there getting their kids outdoors.
