2012 Lake Erie Sailing Trip – Day 8, Friday

Today was to be the end of phase one of the trip as Marty and Jen were planning to head back home.  We started the day with a big walk around the docks to gaze at the giant power yachts and sailboats and before long had scoped out our ideal “retirement” boats, though unfortunately the funds required to purchase these would require another 160 years of work so we’re still trying to fiddle the numbers on that one.  After the walk the whole gang headed downtown, stopping for coffee along the way then exploring some of the shops.

We had lunch back at the boat, lounged at the pool in the afternoon, then met up at the club restaurant for our final dinner which, as expected, was tremendously good and included the previously mentioned succulent bread pudding, which I ate so fast I lacerated the insides of my mouth with my out of control chewing.

We bid our farewells to Marty, Jen, Leif and William then returned to the boats for an eerily quiet night.

  1. You forgot to mention one very important aspect of upholding the gypsy persona, which is to ensure one of the youngsters takes a whizz in the yacht club parking lot upon departure. Thanks William.
