By now, you’ve probably figured out that my family has a place on the water. It’s been in our family for several generations and it truly is our sanctuary. My husband and I have been fortunate to go down every weekend for the past month. We’ve been trying to knock out little projects each weekend, while also taking a lot of boat rides. I really wanted to re-do the flooring in the upstairs bathroom. The last time it was done was in the late seventies. As you can see from the picture on the left, it was time to be replaced. I went down a day ahead of my husband to get this done. I’m very pleased with the results. Of course, when I sent a picture to my parents, they responded, “It’s lovely, now please go enjoy your husband and take your boat out.” They are obviously pretty, dang awesome.
After grabbing some breakfast and coffee, Saturday morning we headed out to the island. Mr. Sugarbears was tickled, as usual to be on the boat. We spent most of the morning throwing sticks to Mr. Sugarbears and enjoying the weather. A little after lunch, people started showing up. We ended up with great beach neighbors. They had a great dog who really liked Mr. Sugarbears.
Saturday night, we went to our now favorite spot for dinner. B had the Grilled Mako and Filet. It was incredible. We also shared a bottle of Syrah from the Rhone region. Yummy.
We pressure washed off the porch Saturday afternoon and I painted some old furniture for it. It’s not amazing, but it’s much better.
It was a great weekend.
