pontoon & cabin~

We took a boat ride ...  went on a little excursion on the Turtle Flambeau Flowage to see some of the storm damage ... take a swim ... have a little picnic ... and to check out Slim's brother Rod's cabin making skills. 

Captain Slim and his best mate ~ Gilligan
Our Grandlove Brooke ~ doing her imitation of Rose from Titanic

  1. I see you have survived and are taking some time to relas and enjoy the visiting family. That water looks ccccold no matter what time of the year it is. I like Capt Slim and Gilligan!!!

    Looks like a whole lot of fun, It is a strange thing how after a few months or years, you will never know the wind hit.
