We had an awesome weekend. Not only did we get some much needed work done at our landlocked home, 😆 but we also spent some time on the boat. It was a heatwave in our area, which means we had a couple of days in the 30's, which we loved. 🌞
The kids had lots of swimming & hung out with friends who took them tubing behind their dinghy, over both days.
The trip back was more eventful than anticipated 🙃
We ended up getting weed 🌿 tangled under the boat, which partially blocked the water intake for the engine, so getting back (which wasn't far) took a little longer, with us anchoring & G having to dive under to remove it & then we had to wait for the engine to cool to get to our dock. Nothing unusual for this area, just a first experience for us.
The excitement didn't end there, after we got back to the club & were secured to the dock, kidlet1 who is a bit of a klutz like me, tripped on the lines (that weren't down yet) & ripped up his knee pretty good, which meant I got to test out the little 🩹 first aid kit I made in addition to the one on the boat for travel, I was really happy with how adequate it turned out to be. Kidlet1 is ok, just a bit banged up, so he's happy to read & take it easy today. 📖
