Sunday Evening Boat Ride

Last night I got brave and went along for an evening boat ride. Anyone that knows me, knows i dont like boats, at least when they go fast. Well my son wanted to go to Madison and take a slow evening ride to check out our state Capitol plus the views...sooo I tagged along. This photo here is underneath a bridge, and it was full of bats. I was hoping to get the bats,,not sure if I did. I tell you, it was eerie. I put a washcloth over my hair. I'm the only one who had hair--Baldy isnt Baldyman for nothing and Joel has no hair either!
When we first arrived in Madison I got this photo of a Hot Air Balloon, probably out doing what we were--enjoying the scenery.
AND......I'm so excited but I was playing with my camera and got this black and white of Bugsy....now tell me-does this NOT look professional or what?
Here is our Captiol at night...this picture dosnt do it justice. I tried and tried but couldnt get a clear, larger photo.
And here is Joel, the my 3rd son and driver of the boat. He dosnt know it but I took this photo and 3 of Bugsy that are in black and white and I'm making him a collage tonight. I enjoyed the ride of the lake, it was a nice slow ride the way I like them!

Looks like a nice evening for a boat ride! (Minus the bats of course!) And yes - that photo of Bugsy looks very professional - great job!!!

I just love Mad Town! Your pics are great and the bats, well I know how you feel! Yuck. My son and wife both graduated from UW Madison and lived there for quite awhile after graduation. Now that they've moved, it kind of makes me sad to go there. Hugs, Cindy

we have a boat and I hate it too! You are a brave girl to go out at night! Not this one. I am night blind and if it is not well lit up...I don't see it at all!
thanks for the story...and taking us with!

Madison is such a beautiful town but not the bats. And yes, that photo of Bugsy looks like a pro took the shot!
