Remote control toy boat

This photo was last Sunday afternoon before we went to Port Adelaide.  We passed on this man-made lake along Glenelg Highway seeing a lake which has a group of people doing exhibition or competition of their remote control toy boat. We almost passed the roundabout to exit the lake when I told my hubby if I can have a little bit of look and take photos of how they let their boat runs. I can see some motorist also stop over just to watch the exhibition.  Looks fun looking the boat sway and go because the wind is blowing them in other direction.  The owner of the boat also adjust themselves which way to go and how to control the boat not to sink in water.

I think this is the start of the exhibition were all are still together in formation but as it keeps going everyone has their own way but suppose to be they should be together which ever way they go, but due to the wind that's why others can't keep up.

A tiny boat reflection I can see in the water


This boats catch my attention because they are always in line together nice choreograph of the owners, the other was left on other side of lake. Look at the owners keep on following where the boats row, it could be on left and right side of the lake, they're having fun really most of them looks retired people.


I had my fun and almost going to drive off and start our way to Port Adelaide when I heard the plane coming of course look up where it is and had a quick snap. It's Qantas Airlines.

What a beautiful lake! I would have stopped, too, to watch the toy boats. The boats were very colorful. It looks like the event was well attended (many boats).

Fun post and I love the photo exhibition here. Thanks for the visit. (We're going to Victor Harbour next month. My second time in South Australia. This time, we'll be staying longer. Perhaps 3 weeks?)

These sail boats are so small you think they are remote control toys.

Hello ,,, thanks for the visit, from Himamaylan ka gali? Nice to know you, by the way, the place I've posted is in the border of Talisay and Bacolod. We've been looking for a lot for sale in some subdivisions and we've found this cool place but very expensive I guess because of the location.
Anyway, thanks again. See you next time.

Scenic Sunday
