Summer Of Love Two, Too?


Summer moments in Sweet Pea

Here we go on Part two of the Woody Summer Boater of 2023. There are so many wonderful memories and little images of hope for humanity. This is a very special community, and a never ending remonder at the start of the day that we are all blessed to be in this universe. Okay I need to go light some aroma candles and move the Crystals I put behind the fridge. They are not working, I still open the fridge for no reason and look for stuff that isnt there. Like a cold slice of Pizza for breakfast!

    What a great photographic review of WoodyBoater 2023. Those images are hard to match, but I have to add one of some of the Michigan gang enjoying a perfect morning cruise from Petoskey to Harbor Springs to Bay Harbor. The boating gods were looking down on us that morning!

    Dear Matt,
    Thank YOU for continuing to be our keeper of the flame and all that it involves at WoodyBoater Central!!!
    We can only imagine what it takes every day to make this happen and here we are, one more year in the books with the photographic evidence that we are family.
    Keep on keeping on partner and in the end, we’re not old, we’re “experienced”.

    Wow, we went a lot of places and did a lot of stuff this year. It was fun remembering it all…even if for me, it was all on a screen! Good times, good times!
