Lagoon City Mishap

What would a trip to Lagoon City be without a TRIP??
Here's an 'extended clip' from the 2005 version of July 1st Long Weekend with Mr. Parker being run over by those hooligans from Rotten Row (well, I guess he deserved that kind of treatment after he tried to cancel all of our reservations - HA!):

If I may be so Bold.
It might be April, near the middle I think.
But Its sure as Hell COLD,
An the rivers still a rink.

I know ,that Boaters we are ,
and we shouldn't think like that.
But who set the time clock thats is thar
On that Rotten Row site we are at.

Boat Ride

My continuing fun continues with a video clip taken in 2005, during our adventure through Stoney Lake. Specifically, this was heading down bound (southward) through the area known as Hell's Gate. This was the 'happy' time that we passed by this way, as we had an unfortunate crunching incident during the return trip this way. This spot is just past the Burleigh Falls lock - about 2 days from The Wick.

BIG Boat!


Me & Anchor Girl went for a car ride up to Midland & Penetanguishene a couple of weeks ago to scout out potential cruising areas & came across this REALLY BIG boat docked in Midland Harbour. As you can see in the picture, it was the 'Rt. Hon. Paul J. Martin', a 730 foot long great lakes carrier. Check this link to get all the fascinating details, history and more photos: Big Boat.
