obligatory sky pic for my dearest and sweetest Helga....guys, what can i do? she is my sister and i have to take sky pics for her. so just get over it k? but man that is a beautiful sky pic. the clouds here are so healthy - i want to eat them!!!
anyway - back to the yacht! we have a friend who is going out west for work, doesn't need his boat, gave it to us to take care of while he is away. did i say "boat'? i meant "yacht". it's super cammoflauged. you probably can't even see it in the pic below.
oh ya baby - there she is. although i think she is a he. oh well whatever. have another look. is that awesome or what?
i feel sorry for all of the rich folks floating around the mediterranean on their 100footers...how sad for them. check out the inside of our yacht.
it's a pleasure-craft to be sure. Mayberry, stop that drooling! here's a shot of jambaloney taking it out for a test spin.
and here's our Johnson 6 horse-power 2-stroke from the 1970's....that baby works like a charm!
and now we are heading out on the river - yachting is so much fun! we were doing 10knots/10mph here. we were flying!
oh man - it was so much fun! wish all of you were here with us!
going around a bend in the river. 6 different estuaries empty into our river. we will need to explore them all!
here's a gorgeous beaver house. they don't need to build any dams around here.
hey - that's the North Framboise Road bridge...we are currently going under it - woohoo!
look at the beautiful lilly-pads! hang on Helga, we're going really fast at this point!
oh wow. the life of a yachter is not an easy one. but i have big shoulders.
now we are heading back home after exploring only one estuary and not very far up it - we have much exploring to do for the rest of August!
there's those puffy clouds that i wish i could eat!
heading back home.
oh heck - that's me. understanding exactly why dogs hang their heads out of cars and trucks - man it feels awesome!
getting closer to home - isn't it beautiful....and not a single cottage, home or person for miles and miles - we love it here!
yep - that's home. that's our piece of the riverfront. we both gave up high-paying jobs for this. i think we made a wise decision.
here is the yacht in the ... ummm....yacht place? on land? it's nice eh? jambaloney dug this out in order to keep the yacht here.
oh and here is the yacht-launch and mooring...man, there are so many uses for tire-inserts and my man never passes up the opportunity to use them. hey, he built this in about 20 minutes...he's good on the fly like that!
speaking of my man....i took about 300 hundred pics of him driving the yacht - he doesn't like any of them and won't let me post them...but i am posting this one.....
my man driving our yacht. he never reads the blog unless i tell him to....so he will never know that i shared his gorgeousity with you all. teehee. our secret, k?
