And talk about old times........

Way back in the Hobie days we raced and hung out with Gordon and Wendy. It's been a long time since we've seem them and the family sure has grown! In age order they now have:

It's a good thing Mystic is nice and big. The boys were thinking of turning her into a pirate ship I think.

Boot Key.....where friends get together again!

It seems like everyone is coming to the Keys this year. Recently we have had a bunch of friends pull into the mooring field.

Just the other day we got our first look at a brand new F-32, Espresso! Felix and Margaret should be very proud to have such a beautiful boat. Nice and shinny and smells NEW!!


Also Les-is-more and Barb (admiral) arrived with their new Gemini. Barb now has the most comfortable bunk in the harbor!!

Incognita II prepares for Winterfest!

So you all thought we were in the sunny, hot Keys, did you now. As you can see we really are on the Ottawa River getting ready for Winterfest. This is how all Canadians (our outfits were never this stylish) go out and party in the north.

Carol & Lynton on s/v Incognita II are finally on a mooring ball after waiting for a while.....the long commute to water Buddy was pretty chilly!

Old friends starting another leg of their trip

If anyone has an interest ........... a couple of old Sackets Harbor folks, Danielle and Roger started heading around the world during the same time we began our cruising in 2008. Chocobo is a Manta 40 and when we launched Grey Hound in Melbourne two Decembers ago, they caught our lines at the dock. Now they are about ready to head across the Pacific.

They too are updating a blog and you can see where they have gone by using the following link:

It's a very small world..........

Hog apparel

They would make unique Christmas presents.........

Marathon goes HOG wild!

With the cool wind and water back into the 50's one has to search out some activities to keep the mind sharp. One such event is the annual Stuffed Pig Hog Festival........yep, the porkers take center stage on this day!!
addition to good food and kiddie rides you also get to see these blazing fast hunks of pork run around the racetrack. You can even bet on your favorite! The three races we watched were won by:
-Harry Hambone
- Troy Aiken for Bacon
- Backbone Betty

Doesn't get any better than this!!!!!! These folks really get into their HOGS!
