Summertime & The Livin' Is Easy....

We are getting ready for our summer 2009 vacation and it starts at the end of this week!!


What's that?? Oh...where are we going and what are we going to do??

We will be "Houseboating"! Never done this before and have no real idea of how the whole thing will work out.....

This is the houseboat on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. Our trip actually begins on Friday as we leave Central FLA, with 2 stop-overs, and begin our Houseboat Adventure on Sunday. A four day trip and we have to be back at the dock on Thursday morning.

It looks pretty cool...this was The Hub's Christmas gift to the kids and grandkids. The boat itself is...are you ready...87 feet long!! Has 8 bedrooms and is 3 levels tall with a huge slide off of the top level. Oh...the kids should love that! There are 5 and they are between the ages of 8 and 12.

This is how you tie up at night...just pick a spot and hook yourself to the ground. It should be verrrry interesting. The dock guys say they can teach us how to drive this ...I would prefer not to have that responsibility!!

Still a few days until we leave...we have so many lists, I need a list of the lists!!

I've always wanted to live on a Houseboat...ever since I saw the movie of the same name with Cary Grant...sounds like a grand tour on a lovely vessel!
