And one burgee will rule them all…

Monte recently relaunched our home-built 17′ Wittholz-designed wooden catboat, Cupholder, in Lake Travis. We spent countless hours making her, and even more sailing and playing with her on the lake. It’s nice to see her back.

Ten years ago I made nautical signal flags, aka burgees, of the letter B for ours and our friends’ boats on B-dock. Somewhere along the line, Cupholder’s was misplaced. So this morning I made another B-dock burgee for her.

Nice. Very nice. 🙂

Flyin' the colors

Happy 4th of July!!  Wow.  What can I say?   We had a blast yesterday.   An excellent morning, too.   We were joined later in the day by Joe on Prelude, Kurt, Wally & Greg on Dancer and Marty & Sue on Caribbean Hug.    I guess I saw this coming, but we ended up having so much fun that we stayed another night — yet another accidental raft-up.

I love it that we have found such a fun bunch of big kids to spend our time on the lake with.    If laughter is the best medicine, I’m set.

As the song says:

….the road goes on forever and the party never ends!

This is a shot of the official portion of our burgee collection — flown proudly on Cupholder this July 4th.   The burgee on the bottom is a “B” signal flag, for B-Dock, of course.
