Another Sunset Race in the books. I got the privilege of paddling with Andy Clones. Danelle needed the van for something, so I took the truck! It was a bit difficult, but totally worth it!
Hannah likes the St.Louis Blues and wants to see them in person. So we got tickets so she could see a game in person. As an added bonus, my mom came in town with her. I wasn’t going to let mom miss a good time, so we had lots of parallel plans to keep us busy!
Danelle had some things to do, so we took a side trip to Grafton, IL twice. There was an event, something like Tugboat Days going on. So there was a river tug available for tours. We went up Saturday and found out the tickets had sold out. Not one to let something that get me down, we took a minor tour of Pere Marquette State Park and the fantastic views it offered.
It was decided that we would go back early Sunday morning and see the tug before mom went home. So the next day, we took the ferry out to look at the tug.
And because it was Sunday, we all got the tour. Here are some photos of a tugboat.
From the tour, it sounds like life as a deckhand is mostly about scraping paint and re-painting all day. Maybe I don’t want that job 🙂
At Corvin’s soccer game, the girls, Sonora, Danelle, and Carol, all used umbrellas to keep out of the rain.
Tiko, our cat died this month. He was with us for about 15 years and will be missed.
We ended up with a new kitten the same month. Petra doesn’t get along with him unless they are eating.
