The schooner rode out her first bout of blustery weather as Sandy blew through Rockland. We're happy to say there was no damage to either the schooner or dock.
While we were busy aboard, Shary was just as busy in the office, closing the books on the 2012 season and setting up for 2013. The schedule is up on the website and we're ready to accept reservations. If you asked us to hold a cabin for next year, please get in touch to confirm that request.
Major projects completed, we decided to take a break from the day to day routine. An invitation from our daughter, Clara, to join her in California for Thanksgiving was the perfect opportunity for a road trip. What better chance to do some classic touring in our 1984 20th Anniversary Jubilee Excalibur Phaeton!
Here we are visiting L.L. Bean to pick up some essentials before leaving Maine.
In the past four days we've traveled 1,332 miles, visited with family in Albany, returned to Fairport, New York where in 1969 we said 'I do', and stopped by Niagara Falls.
One of the highlights of the trip so far has been visiting Camelot Motors in Milwaukee, home of Excalibur Motor Company. Not only did we get a tour of the entire facility including 13 or 14 Excaliburs, we met David Stevens, the design engineer of them all. Knowing our travel plans, the pit crew made a spontaneous appointment to give the car a quick check-up.
What an "Elegant" time we've had so far!
