We had a great turnout for Harbor Day in Port Washington this past
weekend. Considering short notice 7 amphicars was more than expected.
Attendees were all Wisconsinites.

64 Green - Marty, Caryl, Kelsey & Cailin
64 Red - Tom & Cindy
64 Red - Steve, Agnes & Nicole
67 White - Richard & Barbara
63 Red - Wayne & Kathy
64 Red - Joyce, Bill, Sandy, Dan, Anna, Josh, Haily, Janet and Amy
67 White - Nick, Sandy, Liz & Steven

We spent the afternoon playing in the 2-3 ft. waves within the break
wall of the Port Washington harbor. The Iroqois excursion boat(up
from Milwaukee) stopped by us as it returned from a tour. It turned
so that it's passengers could watch us, and even joined in our horn
blowing. An adventurous Amphi (Wayne & Kathy) drove around the boat
(which dwarfed Amphi) and gave the passengers a thrill.

Joyce & family had to go home, but the rest came back to our house
for a swim in the river followed by a late dinner. We had a red and
white amphi for a midnight cruise.

Sunday mornning we awoke to rain which moved out in time for us to
join the Rods & Relics car club on a police escorted trip to the
Saukville car show. The D.J. there told the crowd about the car and
said to make a point of seeing the 6 Amphicars before they left for a
swim. There was a great deal of interest and all of the usual
questions were asked. The D.J. even put the music on auto pilot so
that he could come over and take a good look. As we left, we heard
the D.J. anounce that the Amphicars were leaving to swim and the
crowd should take a final look. Two Amphicars left for home, but the
other 4 played in the Milwaukee river until close to 5:30. By 6pm
the yard was empty, the kids were missing their new found friends,
and we were sitting back talking about how well the weekend went and
how much fun we had.

Those of you who couldn't make it missed a great time! To those of
you who did, you are what made it so much fun!

I'll post pictures in a Harbor Day file when I figure out why my pics
won't upload.
