Monday morning we had to make the tough call. Rain was in the forecast and the extra day we were going to stay with Texx, Mike Mayer and the Harrison’s our hosts in Tavares was the choice of the day. Do we stay and endure a day of rain and fellowship.. OK, that sounds like a church meeting. And trust me, it aint that.. Or a full 15 hour day in the Woody boatermobile trucking home for a 8:30 Am meeting at the office today?
We made the call to split up so I could be home and the team would go on.. and take the rain soaked route. I think we both think the other made the right decision. I wish I had been on the boat ride and they clearly wished they had gotten on the plane home. It was a rain soaked day, regardless though from the jokes and images, I would have been happy to stand out in the rain and been there.
And you.. our trusty readers who came in absolute droves. .5000 yesturday alone! you get to see it all play out. The rest of the week will be the long tail of the event. Videos, and the Sunnyland Awards. I honestly am fried. I tucked Thayer IV into the barn and just sat there. numb… This morning I opened a can of old varnish and had a sniff … Hair of the dog so to speak and all is good in the world. Stay tuned.. More river cruise images from yesterday. And the big AWARDS!
