Really this post is just to get the yesterday’s post’s completion to trigger! So to see it you may have to scroll down past the home page on the actual www.oneifbylandtwoifbyseablog.wordpress.com site. It does have some typos and other issues…primarily though, it seems to have left off at least one key paragraph: the one about WHY we were towing the boat! Here it is because I simply cannot get back into that post to correct and inseert it to the part immediately before the picture of Nick in his green coat in the dinghy::
“Even the weather cooperated, the Bayliner Beast did not. About 3 miles shy of our destination, a screaming jolt emitting from the engine area stopped us dead in our tracks…or rather made our wake crash up onto the stern swimstep. What the —-???? Seriously?? How can this be? No shallows, no rocks on the chart, new engine gingerly broken in, no crabpots (remember this is a lake afterall). UGH! Ok, well time for ANOTHER first: let’s tow ‘er in.”
In the meantime, here’s a view of Killarney waterfront –a town of 400. It only got its first road to it about 45 years ago so everything along its 3 block length has a dock. Not only do you pull up to the dock for gas but you also pull up to the liquor store, the grocery store, the icecream store and a variety of restaurants at each of their individual little docks. “Parking” is limited to 30 minutes at most places! haha
Lots of Loopers passing through. Some we met last Fall way up on the river; others we’ve read about on the Looper forum.
Ok we only have a handful of Canadian towns to pass by on THIS adventure so winding towards Lake Michigan and Chicago on the horizon. Check back again. We’ll try to post as often as possible. Hope all your retinas are intact after eclipse gazing!
