Sometimes it feels like I am still a 12 year old boy looking for small adventures with pals. Okay, all the time it feels that way. And I pray that never ends. Yesterday was an insane beautiful day. Flat water, warm and sadly one of the last of its kind for 2020. Today its cold, rainy and windy.
Jimmy’s Oyster House…home..
Jimmy got a very cool new house right before the ship storm of sales around here, a very very cool old Oyster House, now turned into a beautiful home. And he is rebuilding his docks and boathouse. And did not want two floating docks. And well. I ad been thinking of building one. So? ROAD TRIP.. Or Slow Boat To Jimmys.
I mean sloooow.
As you can see above I texted Wayne earlyish and my favorite part of the text is. No questions, I’m in. So he is 12 as well,
Two more 12 year olds. Jimmy and Keith
So here goes. Enjoy the adventure. Needless to say I had time to take photos.
Trying to line up Sweet Pea. That part on the left? Thats a new channel I carved out. 2 ft, now 3!

The leaves are in full dead bloom
Lining the dock up
Oh boy, here we go
What a day
Evening out the lines. Top speed – 4 knots..
Outstanding in his field.. of dumb things.
The trick was to keep the dock from sinking at the bow? A small wake was a tad adventuring. And some weight, which I seem to have in spades helped.. Pasta tonight?
The one dry spot. For now – Wayne Corey photo. Thanks Wayne
Where’s me? On the roof taking photos for all of you. This is story material. No toilet seat story today

I could feel the iphone plopping in the drink.
Ya! I’m a dumb old 12 year old being towed on a floating dock with a 1965 Trawler. HA. Love this little skiff. And pooch!
The pelicans were not impressed.
And the birds around HQ were just watching as we came in. This idiot is a never ending stream of dumb human moves. HEY, Bird! You try and have a story to publish every day. I get no respect. Oh and clean your dam roof. Sorry, you all didnt need to see that. The birds and I have gotten to know each other a little to well this year. WEAR YOUR MASK DAM IT MR BIRD!
And there she is. In her new slip. The dogs have already jumped on it! And that is just perfect.
Now if you will excuse me and the birds have some talking to do. Little peckers!
