In the Cheap Seats on White Rock Lake
|And here's a whole slide show from our outing on White Rock Lake last night.|
It's an eclectic scene. Along with every kind of kayak imaginable, we saw a wonderful wooden electric-powered runabout and an amphibious automobile. One of my favorite sights was a gentleman lying perfectly flat on his back the length of his very narrow kayak with his hands under his head and his eyes closed taking in every note. I thought of floating over there quietly and giving his boat a little sideways poke with my paddle, but I repressed that thought.
Spencer got into a chit-chat with the guy in the amphib car. Turns out Spencer knows another guy with an amphib car. Wouldn't you know it? And here the first time I saw the guy out there in the middle of the lake I thought he was just a drunk driver.
At one point people turned away from the concert and gazed westward to watch a cranberry-red sun setting behind the skyline of downtown.
Dallas can be pretty cool sometimes. White Rock is a treasure.
