We arrived as you know to Clayton, and enjoyed the show regardless of weather. The museum has done an amazing job keeping the history of boating alive and fresh. The volunteers did an amazing job and were very friendly. The boats that made it were all jaw dropping as always.
The show was down in size, no question, and attendance down by what we could feel. but not because of the passion, more weather related and water levels.
But to the museums credit, they made it worth the visit. The dang museum in its self is an amazing show. The market place / flea market was fantastic and still one of the top ones in the country. The area is ripe with old cool boat stuff, and it shows up.
So, you ask, hey Woody Boater whats the difficult part of the story? Why is today story kinda late? Well. …………. Okay, what do I write about? I mean I can do stories in the middle of winter and make it fun, yet go to one of the best shows in the country, and be stumped? Have I lost it?
Well, ya see, if you are reading this, chances are you also see others out there. Facebook, instagram, and others, and guess what? Its all been covered. A bazillion times over this weekend. There were a limeted amount of boats, and a limited amount of space to shoot them and talk to people, who clearly had there banter down. Heck we wondered past a booth and they guy was just talking like a robot about fishing. No one was in the booth. I wondered if robots had taken over the culture. HA.
This isnt a rant, its an observation. The Museum folks are so good at promoting and using social media that finding stories is competitive. And that’s a good thing BTW. It raises the water level for all of us, and is better for all of us readers. Just a bitch for the writers.
So? What to write about today. It’s 8 AM and I am still writing in and out of rabbit holes of nothing. The saving grace is photos we have that are our strange point of view see’s. Maybe thats what we write about?
Writing about what to write about? Phew that wasnt so difficult? Wait? Are you even still reading this? Why? I promise this week as I milk this to death, we will find fun ways to weave it all together. Stay tuned!
