Summer Dreams

We have been to the Toronto International Boat Show today. This show takes place each January and it brings a hint of summer to the cold, dark days of winter. Who can resist dreaming of the summer days to come?


We own a boat, but it is a long time since we have been sailing because it has been undergoing major renovations. It has been a long job and there is still a lot of work to do before we can launch again. We were hoping that it would be ready for this coming spring, but that may be a little optimistic...it has already been out of the water for more than three years.


I know that when we are ready to launch again, it is going to be a reason for a party! I doubt whether I will be allowed to smash a bottle of champagne against the hull (might damage the paintwork), but maybe I can spray it over everyone like they do in Formula One!
