This year, our family friends were unable to join us and this left us without a boat for the week and renting as our only option. Most of the time, my brother, sister, and I go out for most of the day playing around, but because we were not born before 1984, were all required to take a boating safety course. The website made it sound like an easy 3 hour class. This was not the case, and after 9 hours of "class" I am finally a registered safe boater and can drive the boat.
After that nightmare was finally over, it was time to get mentally and physically prepared for leaving at 2 in the morning for a 13 hour roadtrip. I couldn't help but listen to the song "Redneck Yacht Club" by Craig Morgan because after all, that song was written about the beautiful Ozarks. I have officially declared it this years theme song, even though most of my family despises country. I am very much looking forward to taking my daily sunset photograph to replace last years winning sunset photograph on my wall. Time to make finally packing arrangements before taking off soon! I also only have 24 days left to SCOTLAND!
A view off of the dock out our door. Nothing like waking up to this view.
