This is my travel journal from a yacht delivery trip of the Motor/Yacht (M/Y) Odyssey, a 75 foot Lazzara, which started in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and ended in Bay Harbor, Michigan.- Carla
Hello to all! I haven’t updated my post for awhile… the flu bug laid my sister and I low for about 5 days. We are now up and feeling well once again, so life is good! Even better- we just returned the rental car and plan to leave today!
Here are a few pics from our stay here in the marina (click to enlarge) and (oops, the crochet one shouldn’t be in this grouping):
The mechanics are done, only some computer programming to do with the engines and the joystick. This boat has the new feature where you can drive it with a joystick control.
Staying here a week, though picturesque, has been challenging. It is a remote location and even the grocery store is far away. I am glad that we were hit with the flu while awaiting parts and repair, it would have been miserable to be sick and working the locks.
Speaking of locks, tomorrow, if all goes to plan, we will be in the Welland Canal. The Welland Canal allows shipping and sea traffic to bypass Niagara Falls. Due to our time constraints, we will miss taking an extra day to see the Falls, visit the Niagara wineries, and obtain some ice wine. Bummer!
Creative wise, I have only finished one item- a freeform scarf for my sister:

I am working on some beaded items to share later. Hopefully, I will finish at least 2 items before the trip ends.
More to tell you, life on a boat is very interesting. I confess to being a bit homesick right now to see Joe, Baby Jack and home! Big news at home is that Oscar got 1) a foxtail in the eye; and 2) bit by an animal in the hind leg. He has been to vet 3 times this week. Poor Oscar!

Hugs to you all, hope all is well on your end. The Oydssey continues…….
