July Fourth Plans

So what are y'all doing on your fine vessels for the fourth?

We are heading off with the yacht club on Friday July 1 to the marina at Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast. Somehow I got lumbered with the trip captain duties for this one!

13 boats going down plus another 20 people booking into the condos by the marina.

Saturday July 1 - Docktail party by the pool. Sunday July 2 restaurant at European Village. Monday July 3 BBQ and fireworks at the resort. Tuesday July 4 running home.

48 souls attending in all! Never mind herding cats, more like kindergarteners!

And worst of all Donna says she is going to be bugging me!

Well, since you asked...

Us Canadian's will be celebrating our 150th on July 1st, so on the 4th I'll probably be at work. Still an important day for me though, as I quit drinking July 4th, 2010

Kids and grandkids are coming over on the weekend we will hangout with friends on a sandbar, do some fishing and boating. On the 4th we'll be anchored out to watch the fireworks at the Louisiana, Missouri riverfront.

4th of July

It's hard to beat the show that Hilton puts on at Mildred Island in the California Delta. It been going on for many years and has become the largest gathering of boats in Northern California.

Congratulations on both the 150 year anniversary of CA as well as your 7 year anniversary of sobriety.

As someone that fortunately escaped any addition but caffeine, I'm terribly impressed by those that have controlled it.

Lucky you, but Ketchikan is such a strange first name?

We're doing our best to help. We'll be at the Van Rowing Club (made reservations five months ago) for the fireworks on the First and the parade on the second.

1-5-Oh, Canada.

That's where I'll be for one night. After that, somewhere new each night.

All mods and maintenance are done, so she's ready to go.

Weather permitting, we plan to take the boat up the Potomac to DC for the fireworks, back to the marina on the 5th. This will be our fourth or fifth time doing this trip for the 4th. Nothing like being anchored and rafted up with our closest friends just off the Lincoln Memorial for the show.

We left lake Champlain 4 days ago and are headed back down the Hudson. We have a date with Hell gate on the 28th. After that we are headed east. Looks like maybe Hyannisport or Edgartown for the fireworks.

Should be going through the Soo lock into Lake Superior in a couple of days. Hope to be in Marquette, Michigan watching the fireworks on the 4th.
