Towing the boat to the marina to get the new/used motor., originally uploaded by GAC'63.
Finally found a new/used motor for the boat. Cracked the block last July and have been searching for a used motor ever since.
Can you believe that a brand new 115 hp costs around $10,000 to $12,000.
Very happy with my new used motor, 115hp Merc, now I get to use it maybe two times before I have to put it away for winter.
Sailing thru the Wasauksing Swing Bridge, originally uploaded by GAC'63.
No that is not me on the sail boat, I was trapped behind these boats as I was heading back out to the cottage, so I took some photos.
Googles Happy Birthday to Keith Haring .. celebrate a life, originally uploaded by GAC'63.
When I got to work this morning and turned on my computer and this is what a I saw.
First I was sad, Keith died from AIDS in 1990, a wonderful creative artist lost to a horrible disease. But then I began to go thru the links that Google has for Keith, a saw the whimsy, the intelligence, the sexuality & the fun in Kieth's work. I remembered why I have always found him a inspiring artist. A creative fixture on the culture and freedom of his generation.
If you have a chance go thru the collection of his work at www.haring.com or if you can get to the Brooklyn Museum they have a exhibition of his work on right now.
Enjoy. Live. Have a great day. and Smile.
I took 7 teenagers for a walk to the hidden lake on McLaren island. Little did I know that it would take a hour to get there, one hour at the lake rowing them around, and 3 hours lost in the bush trying to get home.
Dallas Rapids, the mouth of the French River, Georgian Bay, Ontario, originally uploaded by AC'63.
With this map you can see what the mouths of the French look like. This is all glacier carved rock. We started by boat at Key River, entered the Georgian Bay at Key Harbour and and arrived at the lower Pickerel River 50 minutes later. True Georgian Bay wilderness.
