Well hello everybody,

We had a great visit from Steve and Linda Franko. They stopped by to visit with us in North Tonawanda after a family wedding in Seattle. We had time to catch up with what is going on with our boating adventures. They are doing the Great Loop, and we are both going to the Bahamas. Hopefully we will meet them again in the Bahamas.
They had a car which was great. We spent the morning driving around to stores to buy items that we both needed for our respective boats. We picked up engine oil, anti freeze, and cleaning supplies. After lunch, Joy and I went to the Herschel Carrousel Museum. It is an interesting study of American manufacturing in the early 1900s, and the art that was created by talented wood carvers.

We had a great spot to watch two bands perform for the evening's entertainment. However, a strong thunderstorm hit right after the concert started, so it ended up being a rain out. However, two beautiful rainbows made an appearance for our entertainment. We ended up playing euchre for most of the evening. Final score was 2-2.

We also finally got to meet Basil and Danniella from Scrimshaw. They are the people who had trouble with their boat because gasoline was poured into the diesel sailboat. Not a good combination. They had to have their fuel tank flushed out in Erie, PA. Basil and Danniella are transiting the Canal and also going to the Bahamas.

Had the champagne that the Waldens gave us for a special occasion and we figured that the Frankos classify as a very special occasion.

If you would like to travel with us on the Canal, the Hudson, or other points south, just contact us by email or phone.
