I got my notice(s) from the State of Michigan to renew my watercraft registration for my sailboats.
- 1960(ish) Super Porpoise
- 1966(ish) Sunfish
- 1970’s Minifish
- 2000 Sunfish
is that too many?
the 2000 Sunfish and Minifish both are my go-to boats (me in the Sunfish, boys in the Minifish). my oldest son is getting big enough to probably sail a Sunfish alone, so maybe the ’66 Sunfish will get worked back into the rotation (after my BIL puts the splashguard back on it…).
but then I’ll need to modify my trailer to carry 3 sailboats…
the Super Porpoise hasn’t seen the water in years, so I should probably just fix up a couple minor spots and try to sell it. any takers?
Michigan sailboat registration is cheap, though – only $9 for a 3-yr sticker.
that’s another reason that Michigan is a great place to sail!
here is my contribution for (last week’s) photo challenge “local“.
this week, share what “local” means to you, and show us where your heart is.
this view greets you at the start of our driveway to our new home. beautiful fall colors. a warm welcome embrace.
the photo was from a couple years ago, but right about this time of year it is starting to look just like that again.
a spring tradition in Michigan is morel hunting out in the woods. we’ve gone out looking for them twice this past week out at the homestead, and came home both days with some morels. Thursday we found a small patch of them (weighed them to0 – 3.6 oz), and then this afternoon, we brought home about twice as much (8.2 oz) as Thursday.
today’s haul included this monster morel.
so tonight for dinner, we used some leftover steak and baked potatoes we had cooked on the grill last night, along with chopped onions and sweet peppers to make a delicious hash to pair with the sauteed morel mushrooms. check it out:
I spent a few hours yesterday afternoon breaking in my new chainsaw and clearing some fallen trees at our new property. when I arrived at the land, I was greeted by this amazing view of the tree leaves that are changing colors and falling across the driveway.
