How's the water - in Padre Bay
Time to relax in my other floatie.
Water was great!
Floaties are fun - nice cup holders too.
Guess we might as well all get in.
So, how about a fast ride on a jetski ... what a blast. Had a spinout dip too!!
Think they are up to something ... dancing in our near future?
Nice evening shot.
Ahh, our nice little 59' Admiral Houseboat. Leaving Padre Bay.
Our trusty fisherpersons are on the cruise too. Mo catches mo.
Our resting place the night before - Gunsight - Nice wall.
Sun is out but the clouds are ominous.
Well, a hole in the clouds make this a wonderful shot.
But our path looks very wet ... sheer rain and lots of lightening.
This is where we want to go but lightening just struck the top of this bluff!! I'm on the big boat now.
And the rain is coming down!
Get the picture.
Ditto ... looking for a spot to park this big Houseboat.
Ah Ha, we found a good spot Bob, can you park it right here?
The landing crew at work.
Pull that line you honkeys.
If we only had enough food and water. And some booze too!
Well, we found Dungeon Canyon, nice place.
Time to swim and relax ... sound familiar.
Nice spot in the Dungeon.
What a group ... we never have any fun.
Just another shot in the Dungeon.
Lighting the Tiki torches ... or was it an Olympic Event?
And here is to Cummings Mesa from another Cummings!
Oh sure, we can make it thru there ...
See, we made it.
But can you have a plate lunch on your noodle??
Ok, we are excited cause we can now see the Natural Bridge too!!
Just up here a little bit more.
Ah Ha, it is really super.
But does it need to be held up??
Another photographer hard at work!
Our gang at the Natural Bridge ... don't go under the Bridge Jim ...
Shot of the cruisers under the massive walls of the canyon.
Morning light with the moon a shinin.
Another Moon shot at dawn ... whew its early.
Just cruisin the Anasazi canyons in the early morning.
So Mo caught the most fish eh?
Going for a swim before exploring the rest of the Anasazi Canyons.
Just hangin out next to the canyon wall.
Ah, I'm in floatie heaven ... do you see those reflections?
Ah, yes, arn't they something else? The aura is something else here!
Just havin fun.
On our voyage to the discovery - is it wide enough?
Ha, Ha, sure its wide enough ... just look at us!!
Time for the Beach now.
Takin it easy ...
While the jetskis go bye.
They found a cave with a what?
A Waterfall and two Arches!!!
Might as well swim in there and play!!
Speaking of playing, lets throw some water up in the air ... whew.

Yep, big cave with fire ... must be prehistoric.
