End of Summer 2011

The Summer of 2011 is fast coming to an end and we are knee deep in preparing the boat for lift-out, which is in just a few days.
This summer we spent  more time on the land than on the water. Our last summer home we decided to land camp with friends and family who we won't be able to spend time with next year.

Big events at the yacht club included CFB Trenton YC and RCAF Trenton CPS 50th Anniversary.
BIG THANK YOU to Lois Irwin for sharing the photos.

Our boat was featured in a slide show, not only the biggest boat at the club but also the only one with a bath tub, which Gary is showing off in the picture.

We also spend a great weekend anchoring in Sandy Cove as part of the annual YC anchoring weekend.

Swim-up bar?

Everyone came for a visit and Time& Tide's swim platform was under water (again) :-)
