Water Logged...

Sticks and stones may break my bones...and my propeller!
Navigating through this mess at 8am before our breakfast was a treat.  Holy moly!  Some of this debris was ENTIRE TREE TRUNKS.  I stood up at the bow, giving Scott hand signals to direct him so we could weave ourselves through this maze.  For non-boaters, hitting a tree trunk with your propeller is an easy way to damage it.  We tried to avoid this as best we could and aside from hitting a few submerged "water logged" branches, we were successful!  It rained all night last night, which is why all this nastiness washed into the canal.

I am happy to announce we are in the clear now - the sun is shining and it is going to be 70 degrees....yes, 70 degrees today! Scott is tuning up the Ukelele and we are just cruising along.

Thank you Indian Summer!

I'll be thinking of you today while I'm at my office! =) Glad you've once again avoided something tragic and having great weather.

Have y'all seen this?!

I was googling locks to better understand how they work and found some videos of going through one on the Erie Canal and then came across this gem...HA!
