    We dropped by for a couple of hours and gawked at the nice boats for a bit.
    Some photos:

    Fun for all and

    Here is thumper standing by the carnage:

    She has a make and break installed (I think) and makes a pleasing 'Splat, splat, splat sound while underway as the exhaust hits the water along side:

    Of course, no outing is complete without one of our rescue Chessies along..
    Here is a shy rescue Chesapeake Bay Retriever we are fostering just now.
    Out for the day and a bit of needed socialization:

    It would be so nice to go, but its a 40 hour drive for me. :mad:
    its the small boat shows that interest me. I think it would make a great summer vacation someday. (bucket list). :)

    We noticed that the Maritime Museum where it is held opens their very nice property to camping.
    Quite a few took them up and there were tents aplenty for those folks who come from afar.
    A yearly event it seems and many years running now.
    The missus just pointed out the the museum posted some nice pics on their facebk page for the event:

    Anne was built by Jim Thayer and I believe it is his Lil'Pickle design.
