We spent this weekend in Clayton, NY aboard "The Misty Lady," a 36 foot Carver yacht. I am happy to report that this boat floats unlike our Searay submarine. Unfortunately Misty is not ours, but gives us something to strive for in retirement some 30 years from now.
Saturday we did some island hopping and spent the day at Canoe Point state park which is only accessible by boat. It could not have been a more beautiful day to sit on Misty's upper deck soaking up sun rays while reading "Water for Elephants" and listening to the water hit the shore. This, my friends, is how you define relaxation. So many fellow boaters were out with the family dog in tow. I tell you, there could not be any happier dogs on the face of the earth. These dogs were all smiles trotting along the dock and diving into the St. Lawrence after a ball. I vow that upon passing through the pearly gates the chat I plan to have with the man upstairs involves me coming back as a yacht owner's dog. That's gotta be the life.
We rounded out the weekend with a walk around downtown Alexandria Bay and a stop in Cape Vincent to see Tibbett's Lighthouse. Apparently Mel Gibson has a home up in Cape Vincent which we drove by. We haven't been close since his Jewish rant a few years back so we spared ourselves a visit. I'm just kidding, we've never even met but it sounded good didn't it? Anywho, the weekend went by all too fast. Twenty-six years and counting. That's when we can retire and enjoy an entire week as if it were the weekend. Seventy years and counting until that chat with the big guy about what kind of dog breed I'll be coming back as.
So, what did you do this weekend?
