It was a cold Sunday....

It was a sunny but chilly day, so after church DH was impatient to have the boat back in the water. We have been delaying the inevitable dock repairs but one of our neighbors found a repairer who was in the area and shot us a good deal. It only took them a few days of work so that we could walk to the end of the dock AND he was able to restore the electrical power with the existing cable! Yahoo! So, now we are able to have the boat back in the water.

It was WAY TOO chilly to actually go boating, but AA had her first glimpse of what a boat is and maybe on a warmer day we can enjoy the river again.
There are more repairs to be done but we are glad to be able to walk to the end of the dock now. In Memory of Tropical Storm Faye!

I took the two pictures below of DH and AA (with Salty rounding out the photo) then we tried a few "self" portraits. DH's arm proved to be the best length and angle, so the final picture is his doing! Yes, DH is wearing shorts and it is freezing outside (well, just 50 degrees, which is close to freezing in NE Florida!)!!



Final two weeks to buy a chance to win a Wii and help Kris' adoption fund:

It sure has been a chilly November for you! Mom and Dad have mentioned it's been much cooler than last year. Hopefully it warms up for you soon so that AA can get her first taste of boating with mommy and daddy!

I don't know why, but as I looked at the pics I had that old song in my head "sitting at the dock of the bay"!
Glad you found someone who could do the repairs - have fun boating!
