Pontooning on Percy Priest! – Paseando en bote en el lago!

Right now I’m sitting at Bongo Java – I feel like I’ve gone back in time because this is where I spent many many hours when I was a student at Belmont. I’m currently surrounded by a group of students studying for their…old testament exam I think. There are some parts about college I don’t miss at all, but I do really miss being able to go to Bongo and know that I’ll see at least 5 of my friends there. We’ve all become denizens of other coffee shops now! Well, I’ve relocated my business to my Coffeemate and my front porch. Anyway…

Estoy sentada en bonjo Java (cafe) – siento que retrocedi en el tiempo porque este es el lugar donde pase muchas horas cuando era un estudiante en Belmont. Estoy rodeada por un grupo de estudiantes que estan estudiando para su….examen del viejo testamento, creo. Hay algunas cosas que no extrano de mi anos en la universidad, pero si extrano poder is a Bongo sabiendo que me encontraria con 5 de mis amigos ahi. Todos nos hemos alejado de los cafes ahora! Bueno, yo solo cambie de lugar. Ahora tomo mi cafe en mi porch en casa. Pero bueno…

Last weekend Javi and I went pontooning with several friends from my grad program on Percy Priest Lake. Our friend and captain Mary planned the trip right down to the massive thanksgiving-style feast we had on the boat. The pontoon had ย enough seats for everyone plus a grill, so we had grilled chicken, catfish and veggies, plus fried tofu and rice and little sushi bites that Minyoung and her husband Toku made and about 10 different bags of chips and dip. The weather was absolutely perfect; in the 80s and sunny all day so it was never too hot or too chilly on the water. We drove the pontoon around all afternoon looking at the gorgeous scenery and enjoying the sun and breeze, playing apples to apples for awhile, eating a ton of food and having a wonderful, relaxing afternoon after a crazy week. We’re going to have to go again, maybe in the spring, and rent a huge pontoon with an upper deck, slide and bathroom on board. Here are some photos from our day!

El fin de semana pasado, Javi y yo fuimos al lago Percy Priestย a andar en bote con varios amigos de mi programa. Nuestra amiga y capitana Mary planeo el viaje, todos los detalles incluyendo el festin que nos dimos en el bote. Teniamos suficientes asientos para todos y una parrilla, asi que preparamos pollo, pez gato y vegetales, y tofu frito con arroz y sushi que Minyoung y su esposo prepararon, mas encima 10 tipos diferentes de papas fritas y salsas. El tiempo estuvo perfecto; soleado y temperado todo el dia asi que nunca estuvo muy caluroso o muy fresco en el agua. Manejamos el bote por todos lados toda la tarde disfrutando del paisaje, la brisa y el sol, jugando juegos de mesa, comiendo comida, y pasandolo bien. Nos pudimos relajar y olvidarnos de la semana loca. Vamos a tener que programar un viaje al lago de nuevo, tal vez en la primavera, y arrendar un bote mas grande con segundo piso, resbalin y bano a bordo. Aqui van algunas fotos del dia!!!

our fearless captain!!
