It was a dead glass day on the water and we were moving pretty good until we got within about 300 yards of our detination when the wind piped up to about 5 knots and the little power boat was tossed around like a puppy being walked by fat man on crack. We just barely make it to the dock.
Now that's an adventure.
The baby in the picture just turned 30 a few days ago.
Awesome, sounds like something "I would do"!
