The Life Aquatic

by on Sep.03, 2012, under Parties & Gatherings

For Labor Day weekend, we thought it’d be festive to have a lil’ boat party on Lake Travis.

We rented a pontoon, grabbed our Austin pals and motored out for an afternoon of swimming and drinking beneath the hot Texas sun.

We tossed back different kinds of wine, including a super dry Sicilian rosé. (I know, the wine’s pink hue is forbidding! I swear it wasn’t sweet.)

Since it was a happy hour party, we noshed small bites: filo-wrapped pulled pork, shrimp cocktail, corn cakes with creme fraiche, stuffed olives, and some other appetizers our friends brought that aren’t pictured (whoops!).

Lake Travis may not be the Pacific Ocean, but the water’s warmer (a big plus!) and there are easy, cozy alcoves to stop and drop anchor in.

My galpal brought these tomato-mozzarella-basil skewers. They might be my fave app of all time. So simple, colorful, fresh and gorgeous…

Hope you had a leisurely, celebratory holiday weekend too!
