Well it looks like another season is about to end. The weather is getting cooler and the marina is almost empty. Most of the bigger boats have traveled south to Sturgeon Bay or north to Sister Bay for their fall haul out. We plan to stay in until the marina officially closes on October 15th. It’s been a pretty good summer. We sailed with our granddaughter, hosted family for the annual Fourth of July fireworks over the harbor, enjoyed stiff breezes and glorious sunsets, and now are taking in the first of the fall colors. Both the Quickstep and the Lyman have been terrific.
At the end of September, we jumped in the Jeep and drove as many scenic routes as we could find between Egg Harbor and Lake Geneva on our way to the ACBS’s Blackhawk Chapter’s wooden boat show. This is always a terrific event held at the Abbey Resort in Fontana, Wisconsin at the west end of the lake. I put together a slideshow of the event, so if you’re interested, here’s the link.
