|Dock in New Buffalo|
We have officially returned to our home in Lombard, Illinois! Since arriving in New Buffalo, Michigan – August 24th, our time has been well spent. In addition to the routine things an absentee boater must incur upon returning home, such as paying bills, making doctor appointments, visiting family members and many other less important things, Barb and I have decided to store our boat on Lake Michigan for this winter season. January, February and March are filled with travel plans and after that we will consider the 2013 boating season!
We attended a great looper gathering in Chicago on September 1st hosted by Ellen & Woody Sutton. On our way to their lake front condo we picked up Jim and Belinda traveling on Rickshaw and drove them to the event. Later that evening we returned them to their boat before driving back to our boat in New Buffalo, Michigan!
|On the train|
We did a quick trip to Delaware City, Delaware to retrieve our car that was left there when we returned to our boat in April! After our 21 hour AMTRAK train ride, we got on a city bus that took us to within 3 city blocks of our car. The Buick started on the first turn of the key and we were good to go. We stayed the night, and in the morning we said good bye to friends at the marina before driving to New Buffalo to spend the night on our boat.
Now that we fly the Gold AGLCA burgee I feel that I am ready to start another adventure. Will we keep the boat and switch to an RV is the big question! I think a little of both would be great! Until such time that we make a decision, Barb and I want to thank all that followed our blog over the past five years and to all the LOOPERS that we cruised with – you have filled our lives with the most outstanding memories anyone could experience!
