Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Vintage Boat Weekend

This Sunday there will be some classic boat races going on right in front of the campground. The boats are older hydroplanes from the 1950's era. The boats are piloted by men my age reliving their childhood days. Sooooo, Casey and I headed down to the docks to see what's going on.
There are boats here from Va. and there's still more to come.

The old motors are really nice to look and so are the boats

Nice trailer with all the goodies to select from .

I like the black one.

Hey, the red one is nice too.

This is just a small sample of what there was to see.

All the 1950's vintage motors are like better than new. Polished and ready to go, note the selection of props.

This boat even has fins.

I love this old stuff......no plastic here! Clicking on the picture will give you better detail.

Thunderbolt.......they had cool names back then!

Feather Craft, what a beauty!

With a 1950's vintage 55 HP Mercury outboard. Nice combination!

Wasn't sure if this guy was going to make it in the boat.
A little competition? The test runs went on all day long....too much fun!
