7AM is my compromise time for leaving the dock. We used to leave at 5:15AM - but, the current set of folks just don't want to do that. Actually with the conditions we have been having the best conditions have been between 7Am and 9AM.
So, I was up this morning - saw the sunrise starting to form - raced down to the dock to get the pictures - then fed and walked the dog - dealt with pictures on the computer - then was on the dock ready to leave when the boat arrived for skiing. Yes, the conditions were excellent. Other folks do not start to ski in the morning till around 4th of July. So, we are the only boat out there right now.
