Up in the Night



Again I am up in the night. We are putting the finishing touches on another tube repair, and I am just finishing up my shift. I have a couple of pictures to post from our recent Lake Powell Messabout.

We went down with a friend I will call JetSki. He wanted to make one more LP trip this year, and we were headed down for the Messabout, so it worked out well. JS is a dyed-in-the-wool power boater/rock crawler and jet-skiier.
So we wondered how he would react to the gentle art of boat building and quiet sailing. It all worked out pretty well. The boat builders are way out on the edge of individualism, and JS fit in just fine. A very interesting bunch. Annie already blogged on this, and did a great job on it, so I am not going to go into much detail. It was just a lot of fun. My favorite lake, and really favorite place.

This last picture was of the Viking funeral boat that carried the ashes of one of the group that died this last year. It was a little bit different, burying his ashes 'at sea' but kind of fitting too.



Anyway, that is about all for this blog right now. It has been a good summer, and I have neglected to blog about it. I could claim being busy, and could even defend the position, but I was probably somewhere the other side of lazy. I hope this finds you all well.
