Look out Gilligan!
We have a new addition to our family.
No, not a child.
Not a dog.
But rather, a boat. Kind of an old boat. Let's call it...vintage!
My husband and I have acquired my father in law's former cabin cruiser. We're renting a boat slip on a river that's only 6 miles away. It's a perfect location for us actually.
Now the boat...well, it's less than perfect. But I'm trying to embrace it. I think of it like I used to think of my first car...my 84 Jetta (which might be newer than the boat). It had a lot of issues. It made a lot of odd noises. It didn't always work. But I loved it. It had character.
This boat, with its 80s textured uphostery, brown formica paneling, and worn and torn vinyl seating, well, let's just say it has a lot of personality.
Despite the pristine vessels that surround our humble ship, I'm quite excited about our new vehicle.
Although.....I am hoping that when we're out on the river....we're not embarking on any "three hour tours!"
Pictures of "Ugly Betty" to follow tomorrow.
