These friends have a beautiful boat. Its a motorhome on water..very nice bay-liner. Kitchen, bathroom sleeping area for 4. As most of you know I'm petrified of boats...and for the last two years I have visited either in the rain, or colder weather to avoid a boat trip.
Friday was a gorgeous hot sunny day, and I sure didn't want to ruin anyones day, because it definitely was a boating day. After a couple of glasses of wine partaking, I realized the boat was loaded with lunch and supper. Panic did set in, so another glass of wine took the edge off of that. So YES I spent all day Friday on the boat. I think the worst thing was going from shore to the boat on the mooring in the little motorized dingy. That was somewhat hairy for me. Sure hoped the wine was out there with the lunch and supper.
Sitting here pretending I'm all relaxed !!!!
I'm so proud of myself !!! I truly wasn't sure I could handle boating for the day but I knew how much Rick wanted to go out also. Great music great company, great friends and must have been great drinks too.
yup I even drove the boat- eventually...they all thought this would help me get over my fear of boating...Drive into our wake Elaine I was told..keep this up and you'll all be coming to my 'wake'...they were told!!!
Thats right - feed some 'nuts' to the 'nut'...there were also some healthy fruity drinks called Singapore Slings!!! They should have been called "do not pour" Slings!! Of course they fed me those drinks before putting the boat up on something called 'plane'...smart move on their part, I should have known something scary was coming !!!
Yup she was pretty much standing up on end!!!!
There are some gorgeous cottages hidden on this lake !!!
But we had a great Saturday sitting around visiting together, and there did seem to be company in and out most of the day. Needless to say it was a late night but a great one :)...we arrived back home content and tired yesterday afternoon. We both dove for a sofa (this time I did manage to throw dog cookies toward the kitchen and beat Tucker to the sofa), and we remained there most of the day!
So I am very please to have two major Maiden Voyages behind me..now what to do next!!
Take care all~be safe
Home is where you park it !!
