This is tomorrow’s blog — I have been very busy doing so many things with family — Taking photos is one — Other things include a failed attempt at a boat ride to a restaurant for lunch — Nav system lock-up and I will not go out without my digital view of where the rocks are not — a friend of mine marveled to an elderly native of the Island — about his going out fishing at night “You must know where every rock in the bay is?” — the reply “Nope, only where they ain’t”
Anyway, the ladies packed the boat with enough snacks to feed a large crew and many passengers on the 1 hour ride to the restaurant — drinks, sun-lotion, life vests, sunglasses, walking shoes, cell phones, ship-to-shore radio, …………. Half mile out the bay — on the GPS map, the boat image never moved — The captain said “It is just a computer, I can fix it.” — after applying all his computer knowledge — You know he did everything an expert could do — checked the on/off switch, checked the plug, hit the unit on the top, hit it on the side, swore at it, caressed it. NOTHING! DEFEAT!
Someone suggested “let’s he use the Nav Charts” — the Captain replayed “Great idea — what is a Nav Chart?” Within the next few minutes all crew and passengers abandoned ship with an air of calmness — well a few did stumble over each other — To the kitchen the ladies went and created a lunch of home made pizza that exceeded anything you could find in Chicago , NY or wherever! — THANKYOU ladies — With the poise of a defeated high school football team we men pulled the boat out of the bay – stored it in the the barn for future Nav system repairs.
Had a great lunch – to add to the fun we had on our 1/2 mile ride out and back — These adventures are the foundation of family stories — Sort of Like Cutty Shark — only the family knows that story — yet — but just you wait — I know how they all polk fun at this Elder Statesman. From our fun though, I have material for a week of Blogs.
But for now, let me show you some results from the photo shooting fun Sue and I had.
First, Heather sent me this photo from a 1,000 miles away — I think it is Outstanding
