kids - most of you know that when we left ottawa with all of our wordly belongings and 2 cats - we did so in a 1980 chevy vandura. here's a pic of the beast.
jambaloney, who had never driven a car or van in his life, had 2 months driving experience and drove us over 1,000 miles in december, worst winter known to man, in that beast. it's amazing we made it here alive. and that's why we name all of our vehicles "x-dura".
as well as atv-dura. we have a lot of "duras" and i will get to yacht-dura soon.
but i am getting ahead of myself here and i know you all want to see "yacht-dura"! take a patience pill for the love of heck!
it was a beautiful day yesterday!
a perfect day to pick some of our own red potatoes.
and some radishes and third round chives.
and grill up some fresh-caught trout which were stuffed with slabs of butter and salted dill.
grilled those babies up with potatoe salad, bananas and champagne grapes! makes for a fantastic supper!
today was another beautiful day - we knew we needed to get our chores done and head to the river to set up yacht-dura! some kymberz version of vietnamese hot and sour soup was called for!
and then it was time to hit the river and bust out the Framboise Manor yacht - also known as yacht-dura (see comment above about all the other "duras"). beautiful,calm river - a perfect day!
beautiful clouds in the sky.
and a beautiful little creature christened yacht-dura for us.
there she is in all of her glory!!!
yep - a cheap blow-up thingy that i am in love with. it is my yacht! and i don't care what anyone thinks! it's my yacht and i had such a beautiful time in it.
jambaloney isn't too crazy for it - he's more of a canoe and boat guy. but i love it! can't wait to take the mermaid tail out to it.
it was sooooo much fun laying in it and looking at all of the trees and the water and soaking up the sun.
it's heaven. just heaven.
and i am sending much love to you all...even mia more.
