Hi everyone. Happy Tuesday and Happy T day again. Wasn't it just last Tuesday?
And I want to send out big thanks to Elizabeth and Linda for the fun happy mail. I will share those next week when we share our party ATCs.
I am going to start today's post with my next piece for my When It's Hot
challenge at Art Journal Journey
There's still over a week of the month left and plenty of time to play along.
My page is an ode to 3 things- picnics, the beach and if you can get or like to eat lobster rolls.
Today for T, I can share the picnic and the beach with you, but sorry, no lobster rolls. I think it is time to visit Pop's again for one.
As my title referenced, we are back in our boat. It's only my husband, myself and the 2 dogs on the voyage this past Saturday.
This week for lunch we switched it up a bit and had Italian cold cuts, cheese and tomatoes. In hot dog rolls. I guess it is time to go back to the grocery store and shop. Smile. Some of my supplies are getting low.
And for dessert, we have another pack of cookies. I bought a big box of them at Costco earlier this season just for this reason. They are very handy to take on the boat.
And this week's drink is a cold Switchback Ale which is brewed in Burlington, Vermont and is a very good beer. The label on mine could a bit pushed together on the top.
It was another hot day on the water. We did do a bit of mackerel fishing first. When we arrived we each put in our fishing lines. Within 30 seconds my husband caught 4 (there are multiple hooks on a mackerel line), and I caught one. Then we fished for another hour and didn't even get 1 bite.
My husband's boat is made for fishing so it has a wet well. The wet well pumps in fresh oxygenated water to keep the fish alive. Sometimes we take mackerel home to eat (I like them a lot, the hubby not so much) and sometimes we fish with them. But this time they merely kept Maddie fascinated whenever someone would lift the lid until we decided we were done for the day. I then threw them back in to live another day.
Maddie is really into the fish.
And no photos but we went for a dip into the ocean to cool off.
And maybe I've inspired you to get a boat. The beach is near a pricey marina and this "boat", the Lady Kath, is docked there every summer. This year she has a for sale sign on her.
We looked it up online, and the price is a mere 6.5 million US dollars. She is registered in the Cayman Islands so I wonder who is using some kind of offshore tax break.
So if you're looking for comfort and style and have a fortune to spend, maybe you'd be interested. SMILE!
And here's a few other boats. We saw the tow boat out. Someone's engine must have died.
And there were quite a few lobstermen out too. Getting those lobsters for those lobster rolls people buy.
Below, this is the tourist boat that goes around the harbor. We always laugh and say no voyage is complete if we don't see the Heritage. Saturday was no exception.
And we are wondering if these next 2 photos are for some kind of experiment of photoshoot set up. Or maybe real, but in our 11 years of boating here we have never even seen a boat here. It would have been anchored really close to shore for this to happen.
Things just look a little too nicely set up and I don't think anyone would lobster that close to tide line.
I like this photo.
And how about something REALLY big, even bigger than the Lady Kath.
Hope you have a great T day. Thanks for stopping by
