This is the view from my side of the boat in the morning. Oatmeal in my blue squishy bowl, map of the river/lake, coffee and my iPad.
The white bar with red and green things on it stuck to my window is to show me which side the "nuns" and "cans" should be on as we travel. Red Right Returning. This gizmo flips over as needed. If you are interested in what this means just Google--red right returning.

House on stilts.
We saw a variety of houses on stilts on the river. Makes you wonder what the river looks like during flood stage. And we think this guy must own a cement block business. I guess the camper next to him is just hoping his camper turns into a houseboat if the river comes up!
Yup, it's obvious this guy did not consult a competent geologist before he built his house on the river. Guess who noticed this first?
Boat hair? Don't care!
ust in case you forgot what we looked like I thought I better add a photo. Many thanks to Jenn Kenyon for the t-shirt.
It lets me get away with fewer showers...
Tim and I started our Great Loop Adventure on 9-10-2017 in Ottowa, Illinois. We put the boat on a trailer and drove 9 hours from our home in South Dakota to Heritage Harbor Marina in Ottowa to put her in the water. Tim's brother, Dan, drove the truck and trailer back to our house. Thanks Dan!
