Photos from the boat trip

The time on the boat was really good, although the weather turned rainy and windy by Friday.  We did manage to have a good fire on the beach Thursday evening. And our Labrador seemed to especially enjoy her time by the fire and on the beach.   Here are some photos our excursion.

Today, we have been splitting logs from the fallen oak tree.  I rented a hydraulic splitter, and so far we have split about 10 cords of wood.  Much more remains to be done, but for today, we've both had enough. It is really good exercise and so far, we managed to not mash any fingers or feet. Time to get washed up and head to a meeting. 

I hope that you are having a good weekend. 


  1. man, you are putting the work in perspective from under the bridge....and that ship in the fourth pic, all the sails....very cool...keep those fingers safe man...smiles.

    beautiful day here...

  2. Physical exercise is good medicine, especially when you don't mash any fingers or feet :)

  3. We used to burn wood for heat and I loved that. I loved bringing all the kids into the woods with a thermos of hot chocolate and the dad would cut the big rounds and the kids would run around gathering "kindling." Now we use a pellet stove...not my thing, but the dad got tired of the firewood work every winter.

    I am curious about that fourth picture too. Tell us more about that if you will. :o) What kind of boat/ship is that? It looks old, historic old, not run down old.

    I'm glad you had such a good couple days on the boat.

    1. It's a modern copy of a schooner that takes passengers for cruises around the harbor. It isn't historic but copies the old 18th Century coastal trading schooners that once dotted the coast. It is USCG certified for up to 49 passengers.

  4. Syd you have to stop torturing me with weather was 30 this morning with possible snow and a high of 40 by 3pm.

  5. Syd, I love your dog. Every time you post pictures of her, I melt. What a sweetheart. You can also see how much she is loved!

  6. I especially love the pics of your lab. She looks so much like my son's dog who is no longer with us. I'm glad your excursion was good for you.

  7. Thank you for sharing the photos, I always enjoy. You have an amazing eye my friend! Your beautiful lab warms my heart, love our animals. I just wanted to pop in and say hi. Thank you again for the serenity post of photos. It was exactly what I needed today.

  8. Thanks for sharing your trip.

  9. It sounds like you are finally having some restful and serene days. So glad for the three of you !

  10. Love that sweet-faced labrador enjoying her salty sea dog days!

    Those cords of wood will be so welcome in winter.


Let me know what you think. I like reading what you have to say.
