OHM is a really nice place. We have been here a little over a month. Everyone is so friendly here. Loving the town and all the wonderful people here. We have been doing to the First Baptist Church here in town and the people there are so friendly and kind. Thinking of staying here longer….more to come.
What a pretty little area. At exactly 8 AM this morning the PAX Naval Air Station was playing the Star Spangled Banner. I will take some pictures tonight and tomorrow to post them. I have been really behind getting things posted on the web, but we have seen some incredible things on our journey. The kids have having a great time. We have met so many nice people along the way.
We would like to thank the wonderful people at Stoney Point Bay Marina & Yacht Club for hosting us for the weekend. We had a great time around the fire and the kids loves playing with the new friends they made.
We left Waterford today. If you ever get a chance to visit Waterford from the water is a great place to stay for a weekend. You can stay on their dock for 2 days for $10 w/Electric. They are friendly. There is a laundromat & grocery store within walking distance. Florence had to take the car to the junk yard and the rest of the crew met her in Albany. It was nice to liberate ourselves from the car. It was nice to see Jessica before we left and it was really nice of her to take me to the bank so we could cash the check from the car. We stayed at Castleton Boat Club on the mooring ball. That was an experience to get it attached to the boat. We finally figured it out and it was not too bad floating around. I am used to anchoring, but this was unique.
Today the great adventure finally started. We left Blains Bay Marina and only went through the flight of 5 locks to Waterford for the weekend. Ethan joined us for the flight. It was so hard to say goodbye to him. I know it is not forever, but we are going to miss him so much. Hopefully we can find a way to do Christmas or something together soon.
Starting Engine Hours: 929.8
Ending Engine Hours:
Going to Cove to test battery hours and solar setup. Returning no later than Sunday, September 22, 2013.
We finally go the Carver back today at 5PM. We had lots of cleanup to do. We got some of the stuff moved on to the boat. We have more to bring down before we leave on our great adventure. The kids are so excited about this whole plan. Victoria hugged the boat and told it she missed it. If boats do have feelings….this boat feels loved. I think everyone feels more relaxed here.
