Lake Blackshear  

Posted by Stephen Lowe

One of my business partners has a house on Lake Blackshear that he let us use this past weekend. My cousin and his family went with us as and we had a great time. It was a welcome getaway with the family as I had been traveling a lot for business over the past few weeks. We had a great time just relaxing and spending time together. Ethan had a great time, it took him a little while to warm up to the Jet Ski's but once he did he really enjoyed it. There was a bridge a little way down the lake from the house we went to that had at least a hundred mud pipers with nests up under it. I drive the Jet Ski under them and it was like Alfred Hitchcocks "The Birds". Ethan thought it was the coolest thing ever. He didn't like going very fast but he liked idling around checking out the scenery. The trip took all of 5 minutes when me and my cousin were by ourselves to get there but the round trip with Ethan took about 45 minutes. It was worth the wait though.
We talked about going fishing before we went down and he was all hyped up about fishing so as soon as we got down there and unpacked he was ready to go. He really enjoyed reeling in the lure and I had to keep him from going to fast. Unfortunately we didn't catch anything but we had a great time trying. Hopefully we'll get a chance to go back later this year after the heat of summer is gone, the weather was great while we were there but the water was still a bit too cold for the girls to get in. I didn't have a problem with it and even took Ethan swimming for a few minutes. Check out the pictures linked below for some good shots of Ethan checking out the worms and helping out with the fishing gear.
What a nice little family picture. Check out the full photo galleries here and our stop by Veterans State Park on the way home here.
