 Friday was a day spent preparing for the upcoming week with laundry, shopping, cleaning and even some relaxation.  We rented a golf cart to get to town to do some sight seeing and shopping.  In the late afternoon we both went to the spa for massages.  This was to be our last day with our fellow loopers Michael and Cyndie so we all went out to supper at Patti’s Restaurant.  It is famous in the area for their 2” pork chops .  This was followed by a night cap on LADY V.

Saturday the weather map was not favourable so we made the decision to stay.  It was a wise move because we experienced numerous rain falls through out the day and evening.  The heavy rain came with heavy gusts of wind and fog.  These were followed by beautiful sunny breaks.  

At 3:30 we did have abit of excitement.  PAISAN, a 65' Neptunus Yacht pulled in two docks from us on just one engine.  There where five people on the dock helping.  She got in without a scratch.  She has IPS engines that work with a joy stick providing thrusting power, but on just one engine it does not work well.

Cyndie surprised me with a gallon jug of Milo’s sweet tea to enjoy as we continue our voyage.  Supper was at the yacht club.  There was a band playing and the place was packed.  The six of us celebrated the near completion of Michael and Cyndie’s Loop.  Kent and Jan just started their’s a few weeks ago.  It was a night to remember.

A family place and a memorable experience

Grand Rivers might be a dry count, but you can bring in your own.
A better stocked bar than most bars!
