Lunch Cruises

There seems to be no limit as to where we'll go for lunch. When you are retired you have be diverse and imaginative. Last week we launched our 17ft. Sea Fox center console Foxie at Westport on Lake Champlain, motored across the lake to Otter Creek. We followed the winding creek all the way to Vergennes, the designated 5mph no wake speed! It took a little over an hour to travel the 7 miles and we were plagued with deer flies, which kept us busy swatting. It is a very pretty trip though, and we were the only boat at the public dock at the base of the waterfalls. We sure were ready for lunch at our favorite restaurant after a short but steep hike up the hill to the Three Squares Bistro.

The following day was an easy run down to Anthony's Nose for a picnic lunch on Lake George in our Chris Craft Speedster Moxie. It certainly didn't feel like 90 degrees on and in the refreshing water, but back at the launch ramp it felt even hotter. Sorry no photos...we were too wet!

Wednesday we headed to Niantic, CT for a Hope Town reunion at friends Bruce and Gail's home. 22 New Englanders got together and it was so much fun seeing everyone away from Abaco.

We traveled in the Thunderbird and Chris and Deke from New Hampshire drove their 1950 Chevy Sedan Delivery hot rod. What great 'dinghies' they were for this event!

Who knows where the next lunch outing will be! Stay tuned for more adventures...
