This year, the big change was the purchase of a new boat. 17 foot Doral, with 115 HP. Enough to get the kids tubing with some speed. Laurie and I got our boating exams (Laurie had the higher mark) and the boat is a welcome addition. We can now get to Jumping Rock in about 4 minutes, rather than 20. We can pop down the lake for occasional groceries, rather than the 45 minutes of driving we’ve had for the last 15 years.
