Row Boat Regatta #3
The third year of the Coupe d’été Row Boat Regatta saw a bit of weather trouble (like last year) and the event had to be postponed from the 15th of July to the 21st of July. It seems the weather in Paris during the Summer is not what it used to be. 🙁 This caused the participation levels to drop dramatically, and other than me, Chéri and Lauren Cashwell, I had just a couple of participants. But lucky for us, they were some enthusiastic and très easy-going people. We decided to ditch the race for lack of participants and just picnic and paddle around the lake. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, and we hadn’t a care in the world!

The afternoon was full of laughter and sharing with new friends. And honestly, after many months of intensive wedding planning, I found myself lacking the energy to really go after recruting a large group of row boat racers, well that and uncooperative which didn’t help. I was happy to have just a handful of joyful people around me, sun in the sky and a smile on my face. The simple things…
What a lovely way to spend a summer day!
