Sailing at Spinney Mountain Lake, Colorado
May 17, 2009
Yesterday was a gorgeous day here in Colorado, so we took our sailboat out for a spin on a lake. Our friend Tamera and our dog Ally joined us for a great day on the water.
OK, so technically it’s a miniature sailboat.

Ally chased tennis balls. She’s become quite a strong swimmer!
I like this photo of the three of them, each doing their own thing. Tamera was taking photos, Mike was steering his remote-control boat, and Ally was waiting patiently for someone to throw her tennis ball.
Here’s a crop of the previous photo. When I walked to the car to get drinks, Ally sat by her chuck-it and waited for me to come back and play with her some more.
Ally leaped through the water like a dolphin.
She only learned to swim last summer. Until then, she was always afraid to go in water over her head.
Afterward, we went to Eleven Mile Reservoir to look around.
I’m so glad that we have a whole summer ahead of us!
