RE: what a great day!

Well today my dad, my son, and I were "supposed" to be starting our little 125 mile trip down the TN River to drop the boat off to get her topsides painted. *Below is a screenshot of the current weather conditions there. *I'll let you all bet as to weather we proceeded as planned or pushed it off to next weekend! *

what a great day!

Woodsong: "I love our lower helm! When we were telling friends pre-trawler we wanted a lower helm they said that I'd never use it. Personally, I love it!! I do like the bridge on those hot summer days, etc. but it is so nice to have the option of piloting from down below."

You should go!* Make use of your comfy pilothouse, Woodsong.*

haha- busted by my very own words!!!
Truth be told, I was all for going...I actually was looking forward to drinking hot coffee/tea/cocoa form the lower helm with the heater blasting and radio on to keep us cozy, happy, and warm. Alas, my dad is down at their place in FL and it seems I could not extract him from his sunny and warm climes down there to go this weekend. So....had to delay. My son and I are going up tomorrow though to do some more work and go for a spin for the afternoon. *I think it was the thought of having to go out for the locks that got my dad deciding to wait. *

Don't get me wrong! This is an anomaly for this are as the weather isn't that great 9 months out of the year, Also, no place to cruise to. I really don't recommend San Diego for boating.

Posting weather info like that could lead some of us cabin fever snowbound types to contemplate directing nasty comments your way. (I will hold my comments if you keep ahold of the good weather for another month.)

And your comments about boating in your area seem suspiciously similar to the disinformation the PNW crowd has been putting out about how horrible their area is.

RE: what a great day!

Yesterday, I had lunch at the Riverview restaurant in Antioch at the end of the San Joaquin River, across from Kimball Island,*near the beginning of Suisun Bay.* The wind was calm, the sky was clear, and the temperature about sixty (the same as today).* A state research vessel/trawler was circling in the channel and then docked a bit downstream.* A canoeist and two kayakers emerged and went up the river a ways.* The water was like glass, but a gentle flood tide was apparent.

By the way, the Riverview restaurant surely has gone downhill.* Used to go their with my family when I was a kid 55 years ago (loved those crab louies).* Since I happened to be with my Dad and sisters in Antioch, I suggested we go there for lunch for nostalgia's sake.* We were the only ones there eating.* (There was a guy at the bar.)* One of my sisters said she had lunch there a few weeks earlier with old family friends, again for nostalgic reasons, and were the only*customers there too.

It was a nother beautiful day here in Alaska as well, over 50 degrees out, so I went out on Nimbus for a bit as well...
Something is not right when it's 50 in Alaska and 10 in Maine.
