      We were safe, near the shore, throw ropes available, watched out for each other. It was an adventure!!

    Sorry I missed it, but here on the north side of Loveland, at the time I would have loaded, it was like a torrential downpour with hail and some lightening. So, it wasn't in the cards for me.

  • Fred R.

    Right Rob. Surprised we did not see any ducks having fun also. No one was figuring on that type of weather. We did not get to far Sabrina, before we turned back. Waves had white caps on them.

    • Kenny

      Yes... I too would not want to drive from Dayton to not be able to get on the water due to the weather. Maybe I can do next week.
