Corn Roast Pics

Here's a few from the corn roast, last weekend. Or should I have said LAST weekend ;-)

This poor (not so) little guy was sleeping behind Peter's boat on Saturday morning and we had a hell of a time trying to get him awake & moving down the dock. Eventually Peter showed up and got him on his way. As for his beers . . .

I started the fire early to try & get some heat going. That had to have been the coldest corn roast ever. By the time it was dark out, we had so much firewood in the rim that it was over the top. That was a first that I can remember.

Actually, it got warmer as the night went on. Believe it or not, me & anchor Girl were the last ones left at the fire that night. Hmmmmmmmmm.

Amazing how many unfamiliar faces show up when there's free food & entertainment, eh? Oh, that's right - that was the 'Charity' portion of the slip fees.

Sunday morning & A.G. waves bye bye to Boogaboo for the final ride out of Slip #96.

And just like that - she's at our NEW home & Slip to help tie up. What a woman!

For a minute I thought I'd get all choked up about leaving. Nope. Just happy about finally finding the marina we were looking for all summer :-)

Too bad that things never got any better at the old place, but it was clear nothing was ever going to change & I got tired of asking to have the garbages emptied, etc., etc., etc., etc.. Remember folks, we left the MARINA - not the people there.

Dear Commodore: I truly wish you and Anchor girl all the best in your new diggs...More than I was in mine..I hope that you have found the paradise that all boaters search for, and are able to navigate to the regions of happiness that we all seek. As I have said in the past...Time changes, people change, and we all move on...we hope to bigger an better things, but we will all have memories of those whom are left behind and rejoice in the fun which we have had together. Travel well my friend, for this is not the end but the start of a new beginning. Have fun, stay well, and enjoy the start of a new tomorrow.....Cap-"P"-tan .......Stephen J Parker.

Elvis Is Leaving The Building

Well, my friends, after nine seasons at Keswick Marine, 'Boogaboo' has found a new home. Everglades Marina in Pefferlaw.

Me & Anchor Girl are really, really looking forward to our move and the adventures it will bring! I'm hyped about the place and the fact that it has more of a resort type of feeling. We spent this past Saturday & Sunday there and spoke to as many of the boaters there as we could, joined in for a Saturday night fire and walked & rode through the whole place a few times. Without exception, everyone was actually happy to be there! And we could even joke around with the owners!

If all works out with the slip we are hoping to get, we'll be fairly close to the river, as these photos show. All the slips back onto grass and are drive up for cars. No more lugging to & from a far away parking lot :-) And we'll be closer to the areas we like to cruise.

With any luck, we'll be doing the actual move over the next couple of weeks.

One New One

I see we have another contributor signed in for this blog. Hopefully the Harbour Master will master the skills to share pictures and words with all of us . . .

Here's a quick pic from our slip at Ojibway Bay Marina that I took last weekend. What a nice marina. Super neat & clean with a beautiful view of Lake Couchiching. Super duper.

I'll post some more pics & a video clip or two from this spot, down the road.
