rollin on the river

our friends Al & Carol invited us to go on a boat ride Friday afternoon. So we met them at the dock around 12:30 and brought champagne.  Carol brought glasses and her friend Ann from Marin County.  They met in SFO in the late 60s at a residence for women where they both roomed and have been friends since then...

Al and Carol's cute little dog Lilly came along - she is a Lhasa Poo and just as sweet and well behaved as a dog can be... we fell in love with her in the winter of 2011 when we stayed at River Cottage and Al & Carol were our landlords...

we spent about an hour to an hour and a half on the water and then stopped for lunch at the Riverhouse right on the Manatee River looking from Palmetto (where they are located) back towards Bradenton, a the foot of the US route 41 Business bridge.

here are just a couple of photos from the outing-

yes - this may be the only photo you will ever see of Phil on a boat- it is just not his thing...LOL but we had a nice time and a lovely lunch - and would have gone back out for a while but for an appointment Phil had to keep before 5pm.... so maybe again next year---
