Today finds us packing up and heading for the boat for a long weekend. It's the annual IOBG Commodores Appreciation BBQ on Saturday and the district director and I are co-hosts of this event. He takes care of the bar and food and hubby and I take care of all the decorations, table settings and finger foods. We also spend a great deal of time carrying supplies and icing down the beverages. It's a fun BBQ, but does require a lot of work.
On Friday we will boat over to Delta Marina Yacht Harbor in Rio Vista and start setting up for Saturdays event. We'll also get together with other folks and have a nice dinner at Lucy's. It seems to be a tradition and who doesn't like Italian food.
The other really great thing about this event is we'll see folks we don't see often enough. I'm looking forward to spending some time catching up on what's going on in their lives.
Last weekend hubby and I removed all the isinglass from our boat and put up all the screens. It gets really hot in central California during the summer and the screens really help with the air flow and keeping the boat cooler.
Lastly, hubby and I had a conversation about all the work boating requires. Much of it we hire out, but to run the boat requires certain things that need doing. We both agree that it's getting harder and harder to do. We are and have been watching older folks get out of boating because it's too much work. I hope we have many good years left to boat as we love it so.
What hobby do you have?
