Welcome to Florida!

I gotta say, one day on the water with pals and all the stuff that goes with it can erase the last 3 years of drudgery. We all have talked about this stuff for years now. But experiencing it again is a wonderful reminder of the power of being there in real life. no virtual BS. This ship is real. Friendships, laughter, and the just AHHHHHHHH, there are no words for it all. So I will let the photos and captions do the talking. If you are still on the fence. Go out to the car, and go! Just GO! We are all here, with open arms, just 6 ft away please. Ugh..

A day on the water headed to Pirats.. yes that is spelled right.

Through the Dora Canal to Lake Eustis


A reminder. YIKES!

Headed through some new canals

Always two boats


Ahhh lunch

The party is here.

Okay time to head back, its an hours ride and the weather is getting sketchy

Bird houses along the waterways

This is true joy!

Oh boy

Thats cool

Incase you thought of molesting a gator, the Gator HR dept is on the watch

The lock. Turn off the engine.

Hanging out in the lock

It wont start. WTH! This is such a mess of a photo. Thats the Harrisons boat towing us! As in ME! hiding. Nothing makes sense anymore

oh boy.. Lots of laughter.

We got her started and Lets GO.. the rain is headed our way

Just one more photo.. YIKES


M-fine at the throttle. YEEEEEYIKES

As so it goes. Another amazing day in Florida. STAY TUNED!

    What the hell are those yellow and red things with outboards you are passing in the canal. They look like paddle boats with big motors!

        I heard that the Harrisons will be buying a fleet of them to offer as an amenity to future renters.

    I have a classic automotive bench seat sitting in Alpharetta, GA that I would like to get to VA. Approx 60″ long x 24″ deep and 18-20″ tall when folded. Would anyone head north after the show be interested in pick up and meeting me in the Richmond, VA area of I-95 to hand off? I would contribute some funds towards your travel food & gas…thanks, Eric Z

    Paul is setting a nice pace in that video on the canal. Any issues with floating or sunken logs there? Potential for disaster? Also do those yellow excursion boats offer enough protection from aggressive gators?
