Had a fun ride to the ramp yesterday evening
That was nuts but pretty standard stuff for this time of year. Glad i buttoned up the boat before we headed up to the Casino. We were hanging out on the dock with everyone watching it roll in and i think we were the last ones in the side door of the casino heck i pulled the door down lol. We caught a break and shot back to Seaway around midnight or so. Wasnt to bad and i think we got wetter splashing around in puddles then from the rain lol. Glad i left the AC on slept pretty good . . . . i mean passed out


What a crazy weekend hard to believe we were laying on the beach in near hundred degree heat just a few days ago.

Musta been pretty rough if Donna and Ian got turned around. I ran out to our harbor light on Monday and was clearly glad i came back on Sunday. Also got a few phone calls thanking me for the suggestion.

Well they arrested in a suspect from the PIB murder already.

Haven't stated his name, only that he was from the Bowling Green area.

Wow wee!

Donna said it was really bad.....really bad.

I'm not disappointed we stayed until Monday. The boat ride wasn't terrible, we got a little wet, but had a blast on Sunday and that made it all worth it in the end.

I also overheard that there was a moped or something that caught on fire and burned the girl riding it pretty bad but haven't been able to find anything on it yet. I was over at PIB most of the weekend but decided to come back early on Sunday as well. For once NOAA got the forecast dead on the money.

Edit: Did find something - We were sitting at Tony's Garage Bar and saw a burned up golf cart being towed on Saturday - Don't know if it was the same one that was involved or not:

I have been using the Bluefin marine weather app on my Droid an so far has been pretty good. It has an active map linked to NOAA that you can pop up by zone or even get real time data from any of the weather stations, wind speed and direction that kinda stuff.
