We managed to get away for the entire weekend.  What a way to celebrate!!!  Leaving at around 8:00 pm to go to dinner at the GNYC in Chippawa with clouds and a few scatters of rain we arrive to a vacant dock with some party goers at the club.  We even had time for a bevy.

Rain during the night and drizzle on Saturday morning and we realized we forgot the camera.  We then headed off to Tonawanda to our favourite little spot along the Erie Canal.  Scott and I washed the upper deck and cleaned windows.  Met some fellow boaters that we have seen but never met and realized they were more seasoned at the party than ourselves.  Besides I can’t drink, or eat, for that matter.  The sun was out by 3:00 on Saturday.  The boys decided they were going to make a homemade cake for me for my birthday and of course there were gifts to open.  No one is more excited than me to receive a new toaster and cast iron frying pan.  Love the bike shorts too!!!  The cake was Yummy!!! Early to bed!!

Sunday we woke to drizzle, rain and more rain.  On the plus side we found out that there was a “Boat Blessing” at 2:00 with an antique fire boat coming into the entrance to the harbour for a big show.  So we gathered up our lines and fenders and off we went to watch the spray with about 30 other boats.  Then the parade into the harbour to be blessed.  Mom will be so pleased that the boat has now been blessed.  Scott and I are surprised that she didn’t start up in flames.  We stopped at our spot on the wall again and stayed till about 6:30 or so before heading home.  Even though the rain was intermittent and steady at times the day was another great day on the water!
