Sunday, August 26, 2012

This morning, after breakfast, I filled the fresh water tank (park water pressure is low, so we use the pump, but have to periodically fill the fresh water tank), then I cleaned the windshield to make vision better as we drive to my sister’s house tomorrow.  Then I decided to clean out my three contact lists – Outlook, Gmail and iCloud.  I got some of it done, will have to finish next week.

This afternoon, we went to the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton, NY.  They have boats from every era.  Here are a few.  This Chris Craft was designed with the 1958 Chevrolet in mind, with fins, dash and accelerator.  IMG_0795IMG_0796IMG_0797

There were yachts and racing boats.  IMG_0799IMG_0801IMG_0802IMG_0803

Here are pictures of La Duchesse.  It was built about 1900 by George Boldt (see previous blog about Boldt Castle) for about $100,000 and named for his daughter that he always called Duchess. IMG_0800IMG_0804IMG_0805IMG_0806IMG_0807

The piano is inside the living room, but the window opens onto the open air dance floor.

Across the road, the museum has a building filled with racing boats, 20 to 250 miles per hour.  IMG_0809IMG_0810IMG_0811

We went out to dinner in Clayton with Tom and Elaine.

Type at you later.
