A special treat tonight.  Homemade fritters by G & kidlet2.

They were delicious & were gluten, egg & dairy free

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. 📖

Warm summer days on the boat are the best!

Clearly I have fibre artist's hands....

Tansy might be considered the winner, I guess...

Great reminder why gardening gloves exist. Huge blisters on both hands,  but my left hand (pictured) had to have the dirt scrubbed out, after they popped. Whoops!

Gardening is not an art form that anyone in the family is particularly good at, really not sure why I persist sometimes 😆😜

Really hard to get a decent pic of the kids other great find today,  a blue spotted salamander.

There were a number of toads, worms & other critters found too, but the grey tree frog & Sally the blue spotted salamander were the favourites, in another day of exploration in the yard.

Not often we get a pic of us on our boat or even the boat on the water, as we don't have a dinghy,  but our friends on Vandor suggested getting a pic. Thanks Nick for the pics. 

Here we are underway.

Awesome trip, we did 40nm in 9hours from Henderson Harbour to Trident in one day. Had some great south & then south westerly winds to carry us back. Lake Ontario was a bit choppier & tossed a few things down below, but that didn't diminish the fun had.
