as we drove out to Rabbit Lake for the Regatta we stopped so I could get a shot of the runway, lol…


reminded me of driving along Ness by the airport

it was a lovely sunny day, until it wasn’t… all of a sudden these huge dark clouds appeared and the thunder started rolling… 


our guy was at the start line for his first race ever when they announced that everyone had to come off the water…

then we waited to see if the downpour was going to stop… in the club, along with all the boats they had sandwiches, fruit, treats and souvenirs, which we might never have seen without the rain, lol…


all the grandparents stood around under the awning with the mother and son and had a snack…

there was one lighting strike right across the lake which had everyone jump about a foot off the ground… we could smell the ozone… after about 45 minutes the rain stopped and clouds broke up… 

the sky cleared and the races were back on… our boy did very well… he finished his singles… it was a long way… 


then he had to come back to the dock and jump into the boat with his doubles partner and off they went… they got a third place in that race… all in all it was an excellent start to his rowing career…

lots of fun to watch but we did learn that we are going to need binoculars for this sport, lol…
