Glad you checked this out. Few experience one that are not taken by the splendor of the heavens.
It was "AWESOME!" to Millennial-ize the description.

Might have been a good time for us to do a surprise visit to our niece in Clarksville. Didn't realize it was in the "path of totality". In our area of Nebraska we were in about 95-97%, though the light started looking eerie as soon as the eclipse got to the Oregon coast.

Floating on a lake sounds like a perfect place to experience the totality. Especially when it occurs in the afternoon. We were in Oregon and "all done" well before noon. We had planned it for three years and it didn't disappoint!!

This was a very very special day for us - for a bunch of reasons: We got to see the total eclipse. We consider this day our first day of being "Full Timer's!" We got to share this special day with another wonderful couple (Howard & Linda). We got to water ski (my passion) We got Howard up water skiing and he had not skied in a long time. And I will say it again - the eclipse was a fantastic experience. This will be a day Mary and I will remember the rest of our lives. We are blessed! Lew & Mary

We bet its nice being back in the Cambridge.

What fabulous serendipity for you two. It sounds perfect to me. Sure am envying you the chance to waterski, one of my favorite childhood pleasures. Eclipse on the lake, fabulous!
