Sky Watch Over 6 Flags
Well, I am sure you knew these were coming, didn't you? The first one has a story behind it... We were with a different group this year than last year. There were two single moms and a single dad. Rhett wanted to be with his friend Alex so we all were hanging out instead of with the group we stayed with last year. Believe it or not, it had just rained before I took this one. I loved the fact that it had the water at the bottom and the sky at the top of it. I told Alex's dad, I wanted to take this picture and I would catch up with them. BIG mistake. I'd heard the boys talking about bumper cars. Well, I learned my lesson the hard way... never, ever leave your group. I was a lost parent. I wasn't so worried about Rhett because I knew he was with good people. I did pretty good though. I didn't panick. I didn't cry and carry on. I went to places I thought they'd be, but they were not there. I spotted our preacher about to get on the Scream Machine. His cell did not pick up very well underneath the shelter. Then I came across some more of our group. I saw one of the lady's sons and asked him to call his mom. They said they were at Skull Island, but they had not arrived yet. They were just then walking over to it. I was very relieved to see my son. I asked him if he missed me. Angie said he was wondering where I was. I did not take any photos for a long while after that happened.
This first one reminds me of something David or John would take.
After spending about two hours at Skull Island in the shade with the water blowing is cool spray on us, we rode Thunder River. I thought I was going to get seasick. I had my cell phone and my digital camera in the depth of my side pocket, but wouldn't you know that one pocket would be the side to get the wettest! It did not harm either one - thank goodness, but I was still wet when even when we got home. Rhett's bathing trunks and towel sort of soured in his Rugrats backpack.
I took this last sky shot while were waiting for our group to arrive as we were about to depart after I'd taken the Batman and Joker photos I posted earlier. Hope you go back and look at them as well as my Bat poem. I loved the sun's rays in this one. Who knew I'd get such great Sky Watch pictures at 6 Flags?
