Blue Angels Over Whisky Island 2010

Blue Angels Over Whisky Island 2010

Labor Day weekend usually signals the end of summer on Lake Erie, and the Cleveland Air Show is the Grand Finale.  Our Whiskey Island Marina is a perfect place to watch the air show without the throngs of people (althought recent years have seen a marked increase in ‘outsiders’ invading our hide-away). 

Weather for sailing, however was not the greatest.  Saturday was cold & wet and WAY too windy…with gusts over 40 mph & sustained at around 32. Sunday was far nicer. We went out on Sunday with some folks, but found the water very lumpy. We were unable to get enough wind to speed us over the waves, so it was a rough ride which brought mild mal de mer to one of the guests.  Ergo, the iron genny came on to plough us through the waves with less rocking & we ended our excursion earlier than we would have liked.

I made & donated a quilt to raffle for our boat club. We held a gyro & snow cone sale on Sunday.  I cut & sewed the top on Outrageous, and took it home to do the assembly & quilting.

Looks like no boating this weekend either. Others have conspired against us, but hopefully we’ll have some more nice weekends before the end of the boating season. 

But we DO have the Annapolis Boat show to look forward to in October!!!!
