Just the thought of Mark in a Speedo makes me kinda glad I will miss that.

Late summer/early fall I hope to go from SE NC up into the Chesapeake to Baltimore where my sister lives. Take her and her family for a tour around the bay. My folks will be up there too, hope to take them too. My sis and I grew up on the bay and neither of us have been on the water much up there in like 25 years.

Bay is HOT in mid summer, but as fall comes on it should be nice.

No solid plans yet, just pondering....

Voyageurs National Park for a week of cruising. Google it. A boat-only National Park.

We'll be on Rainy Lake.

I grew up fishing, camping and canoeing there before that area was a National Park. My Dad grew up fishing there with his Dad during the summers. I learned how to run powerboats there in a 14 ft aluminum with a little Johnson.

Also did an 8 day trip into the boundary waters with 4 canoes, 7 high school buddies, a guide and countless portages. Great experiences and memories.

I don't deserve this. My beer belly and related body parts are not nearly the largest of my contemporaries! Whatever, watch out for Perla, a former photo/journalist who enjoys immortalizing others' embarrassing moments.

Well, our 4th was definitely a new experience, watching Macy's fireworks from the water. We were in one of the zones in the Roosevelt Island area. Got to the area around 6:00 pm, fireworks at 9:20, have to stay put after until the CG releases you to leave your area. We grilled steaks while waiting, watched the pre-fireworks show on television.

It was a unique experience being in the middle of all that and certainly an upfront seat. Have to hold your position but no anchoring. One of those things you really enjoy doing the one time and having the new experience but next time there might just stay at the marina, watch the fireworks at Liberty State Park and watch the one's from Macy's on tv at the same time.

The fireworks were great though, the view was obviously the best one could have, and being a part of it, part of millions in person plus many millions watching on tv. Certainly a heightened level of security. There were over 7000 NYPD policemen on duty and I have no idea how many CG members, but certainly a very high number. CG boats everywhere and very strict rules for all boaters.

I must say this though, very well organized. I compare to Biscayne Bay at New Years Eve which is chaotic, especially when leaving. In NY each group is released separately and no one dares speed or enter or exit an area when they aren't suppose to.

Now just back to the streets of the city and enjoying all it has to offer. Only a day and a half left for now, before we fly home on Tuesday for about 3 weeks.

Leaving Fort Pierce for Jacksonville with an interim stop for a few days in St. Augustine to visit with a grandson. My thinking has changed a little about moving north. I'm considering Cuba.

Four days at Catalina Harbor at the end of the month. For those not familiar with Catalina Island, Cat Harbor is at the Isthmus, which is about 2/3 of the way from east end to west end, and it's on the open ocean side. This will be the first cruise for Cheers (I don't count the delivery voyage as a 'cruise'). Total round trip about 140 nm.

I'll have my son and his lady aboard plus their 3-year old Maltipoo. We'll be meeting up with a number of friends from other So Cal yacht clubs.

And yes, I'll return with pictures.

Waiting anxiously
