The Whitehouse Lifestyle!

Kathie & I have been boating for many years. We have had several boats. Our present boat is a 39' SeaRay Express Crusier that we keep at the Detroit Yacht Club. We use it as a summer home and have enjoyed the boating friends we have made over the years.

The best thing I can say about a boat and being on the water is that is an important change of pace that lets us unwind from the pressures of a seven day a week profession. Our boat is named "Knot For Sail".

What's all the fuss about?

 

 

Oh, it's our boat mates. Meet Lady (the one with the gray face), she's the mother of Rocky (in the middle) and finally there is PC (short for Penelope Candace). These three think the boat belongs to them and that we dock aft-in so that they can be entertained and petted by the folks walking the docks.
This picture was taken at Bay Harbor Marina in Harbor Spring, Michigan, in the summer on our annual trip north.

Another shot of our travel companions, two of our three miniature dachshunds. The black one is Rocky, short for Rodchester. Rocky is the son of the missing dachshund by the name of Lady (Lady Megan). The third one is PC ( Penny Candy, Penelope Candace) is fast just like a computer and was brought back from Germany by our daughter Samantha while she was studying at the University of Freiburg i.br. The three dogs enjoy boating as much as we do.
This was taken at the French River inlet to Georgian Bay in Canada. The area is a great spot to anchor a boat away from civilization. The area features numerous small rapids and channels leading into the bay and is a loads of fun to take a dingy and explor the rapids. The photo shows Doug & Kathie headed up the river towards a small rapids.

The real reason for boating. What better way to end a day than sitting on the back of a boat with special friends while watching the sun set over the Great Lakes of Michigan.
