Saturday 3 August 2019


Yesterday was construction day, a day spent building Owen's boat. He designed it and grandpa cut the wood. Even Kate helped by keeping our pencils sharp.

Oma and Sherri attached the rigging and the sail; it was a family effort.

The official launch took place after supper .......... would it float or sink?

Success!!! Now it's play time.

They spent hours in the water, pulling, pushing, and filling the boat with rocks.

Soon they were taking the boat far from shore so it was time to put o their life-jackets.

Oma and Sherri kept a close eye on the water. They were the lifeguards who decided it was time for life-jackets.

Owen trying to climb in but the boat was just too small. Guess he needs to design a bigger boat.

If you can't climb in maybe you can sink it. Boys like to play rough!

Giving grandpa the ready sign so grandpa could run as fast as his old legs would carry him up the shoreline tugging the boat and Owen behind him. No need for a gym membership when the grandkids are around.

It was a wonderful way to end our day.

Today we are off to the gem show.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
