Happy Independence Day from Our Boat to Yours!


I hope you’re enjoying a little rest, relaxation and holiday fun as you celebrate the Fourth. We had the boat out over the holiday weekend and came across this houseboat decorated in all her patriotic glory. . .


Complete with Uncle or Aunt Sam ;)

    Aunt Sam, lol.
    Fireworks are the happy reminders of the cannons and muskets shot for our original liberties in this country. May we never forget those, nor the soldiers who’ve kept us free. Happy 4th!
