We've been in Michigan for a hectic 10 days. We've got the cars on
the road, bikes ready for use and started the many boat projects.
For Father's Day we attended the Renaissance Fair in Muskegon with
Will, Jen and Megan.
Megan and Grampa hamming it up.
Neat parrots at one of the vendors.
Not a happy granddaughter. She was arrested along with her mother
for "failure to kiss her father on Father's Day". They had to chase
her down and catch her to put her in jail.
Then, Grampa was arrested for laughing at his granddaughter in jail.
Mom and Megan pleading their case before the Judge, who decided in
Grampa's punishment, dance the "little unicorn" dance.
Megan's dad was arrested for having his wife and daughter arrested
for "failure to kiss"; as you can imagine, humiliation in front of
the crowd was the normal punishment.
Grampa had Gramma arrested for "failure to kiss".
My punishment was "bloking", being kissed by all the near by male
Embarrassing perhaps, but not too unpleasant.

Our phone and internet service here in Deltaville has been
deplorable and so updating the web site will wait until we return to

What a fabulous day. We left Elizabeth City at 7 a.m. and tied up to
the dock at the Dismal Swamp visitor center around 1 p.m. We will
post a Picasa album after we finish motoring through the canal.
Leaving Elizabeth City behind.

As we left Little Alligator River this morning we passed a
shallow area, which was full of duck blinds. At first, we didn't
know what they were, but the chart listed them as duck blinds.
Although the sky was partially sunny as we were pulling anchor
it quickly gave over to dark gray clouds. Some how we managed to
avoid our 50% chance of rain.
This blimp hangar/factory is on the Pasquotank River as you sail
to Elizabeth City. Later at the Rose Party (a meet and greet)
provided by the city; it was explained that all the blimps except
for Goodyear's are produced in this facility.
After the meet and greet a group of us went to dinner at the
Cypress Creek Grill. The food was great as was the conversation.
This picture was given to us by Colin and Jean on Lily Marie.
Colin had taken while we sailing near them.
Leaving Pungo River to go through the canal.
We were trailing behind the pack most of the day.
