Lake Dora Boat Show Day 2, Saturday

The Best Day!

Having an old wood boat is one thing.  Having an old wood boat and sharing it with a lot of other people is another.  Sharing it with a lot of people who are your family, friends, clients and people who dig wood boats is just the best.  I have had an describable day!  I started out wanting to high light the story of the boat and what I got was way beyond my expectations.  People is what it is about.  The boat is physical.  The story is emotional.

I saw family members, friends I had not seen in years, clients who are part of my family and new acquaintances who are now part of Cherup's story.

I have so many pictures and stories, but it is so late and I have to go back to Tavares for the fourth time in four days in the morning, which is not that far from now.  I will have more in the next few days.
