Sailing Down the River ~ 7/12/15

Sometimes spontaneous plans actually work out and a small group gathered at the Waalkes' house for a lovely pontoon boat ride up and down the Thornapple River this afternoon.
The scenery is beautiful but we did a lot of gawking at the huge mansions sitting up on the hill, along with their stairways to heaven - eeks!
We pulled over in front of the Van Andel mansion so Garret & Ellen could take a dip.
Sliding under the Camelback Bridge is always an interesting experience :-)
Garret was refreshed after his swim and we all enjoyed the snacks, beverages, & company.
On the way back we spotted this guy performing some jet ski flyboarding trickery! It was great fun to watch.
But mostly the river exudes serenity and we were grateful to experience a few hours of what the river had to share.
