FRIDAY>>>Well we didn't get away at 10... more like 11 and got back to the boat show at 5pm,most everything was closing down, most went off to lake Haris lodge to party the night away, but my healing leg draws alot of energy out of me so off home to shower and cool off for the night.
On the all day river cruise we had 7 amphicars and 18 peolpe.None were the local year round residents of Florida.Lunch at Gator Bay was very good with a few gators going by as we ate.WOW.
much better than hanging around a parking lot.. everyone enjoyed themselfs.
Now for Saturday..............
Over too soon. We got started about midnight Thursday. Friday Gord put together a cruise. Great seeing some new parts. Friday night ended perfectly at The Hide away. Saturday we took water to show and took water back. Mild breezes not really too windy at all. As usual a couple of the yellow shirts (Sunny Boat Club ) need to bark and swear. I truly do not understand how someone with so much can be so unhappy. Once again we did less boat show and was better for it. Back to reality here with real winds and cold rain. brrrrr.
