I am really late getting this blog posted. Bill had this written a week ago. I have no real good excuse, but I have two to try.
Excuse one: We now have a computer doing our work schedules and it has me scheduled all kinds of crazy hours. I am having trouble adjusting to not having a routine in my work-life;o)) Just kinda out of sorts;o((
Excuse two: Just so many great pictures I had trouble narrowing it down to the large number I will be posting ;o)) In fact, there are so many that I will breaking the blog into two parts!!
PART ONE – Before and After the Boat Show
Nancy and I woke up to a beautiful morning with the temperature about 60 degrees and no wind or rain. We got on our bikes and took a 15 mile ride before the wind started to pick up. Talk about a perfect morning for a bike ride!
We enjoyed the Halloween decorations our neighbors had on display.
Even Mother Nature had her Vultures and Moon out!
After our ride, Nancy made us fruit drinks and we made plans to go to the Wooden Boat Show in Georgetown. Georgetown is about 20 – 25 miles south of our house.
The show was all along Front Street and the Harbor Walk.
Click on any photo to enlarge.
Parking was not available along the streets,
There was a small farmers market going on
at East Bay Park when we arrived.
After we parked, we walked down River Street through
We continued on past the commercial marina
As we turned onto Meeting Street to get to Front Street, we saw this relic.
Doesn’t it look like Noah’s Arc with sails!
Now for an unexpected surprise. We have never walked the street of Georgetown before. Little did we know that there were so many beautiful restored homes. Most of the homes we saw were built around 1900.
Our walked down Front Street to the show
took a little longer than we thought it might;o))While we certainly enjoyed seeing these beautiful homes, we really are not interested in all the work and money
it takes to maintain them ;o))
Just before we reached the boat show, we saw this Pirate
explaining something to these tourists!
Part two of this blog will be all the photos of the Boat Show.
So fast forward through the boat show and
we are heading back to our car at East Bay Park.
Then one more beautiful tree lined street
before we get to East Bay Park.
We walked right down the middle of the street
to truly enjoy their canopy!!
At the entrance to Morgan Park was a plaque
dedicating the park to William Doyle Morgan.
As we headed back to the car,
Driving out of Georgetown,
What a great day!!
We will certainly make it a point to come back and
see the show if we are around here next year.
A nice surprise for a small local show!
The real surprise is that you saw none of the boat show.
Hope to get that posted soon....promise ;o))
