Vacation Stories - Part One

So, we packed up our boat with everything we thought we would need and then some. You remember those cartoons, where there is too much stuff and too little space, but the character puts everything is a suitcase, and then they show the suitcase with everything neatly folded and fitting properly???

A few days in, we did manage to get things squared away better. Going through the locks was great, it was nice and peaceful. We left during a heat wave, but the temperature dropped perceptibly when we left the open lake and entered the canal system.


  1. Tracey, it was dreamy....Buddy slept almost all day whenever we had the motor on!! Of course, that meant he was up all night too!!

  2. Wow!! your pictures are wonderful! You all look like the world is treating you well. Daddy sure has a big smile and all the rest of you look so relaxed...Good times! may you enjoy the fun parts forever! kwgma
