Weekend Waterview: Boating with Dogs

We haven’t been boating much this summer for one reason or another. But it’s one of our favorite things when it’s not too dog gone hot. Early mornings or late evenings are our preferred times for a ride, avoiding the heat of the day. There’s nothing like feeling the wind in our ears. . . Or…

Sailing into Summer: Nautical Fun on the Pontoon

I’m weighing anchor and sailing into summer with a little nautical fun on the pontoon! The summer boating season is definitely underway on the lake with our warm (hot!) weather. Towels provide a tablecloth and absorbent seating and pillows keep us anchored for a little nautical fun! Rope cocktail plates, purchased a couple of years ago from Pottery Barn,…

Spring Forward to Boating Season!

Weekend Waterview: Sunset Cruise

My Name is Chloe and I Have the Punxsutawney Blues

My name is Chloe and I have the Punxsutawney Blues.  Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow Monday, predicting six more weeks of winter and none of us are happy about it. That means no boat rides for a while. . . Basking in the sunshine. . . Or enjoying the wind in our ears. No bird watching for a…
