While my sister and her family are visiting from Connecticut, we wanted them to visit Lucas Boatworks so they could see it first hand. We originally thought we'd put kayaks in the water, but the weather was not that great . .. it was okay, but not really "let's get out in the water" type of weather. But, I took Kathy and her husband Dan and their two boys - ages 17 and 20, out to meet up with Steven there yesterday and they still enjoyed, even without the actual boating!
Kathy, Dan & Ian with Steven down on the dock- Asia too!
(love the Spanish moss -love that dock!)
Steven with Howard's melonseed sailboat, almost done.
There is always to much to see in the pole barn!
my nephew Ian, Dan and Steven walking by Wally's melonseed
Kathy checking out the weight of one of Steven's handmade kayak paddles -it's very light!
The new paddle he is working on for a Stand-up paddle board
Steven showing us some of the cedar he cut to create the paddle
My friend Cheryl stopped by, yay!! She brought her stand-up paddle and 2 other ones
for Steven to check out. This is his first stand-up paddle design, so sweet of her!
(Dave Lucas watches Steven's antics and says, "crazy steve")
3 different paddles for stand-up boarding - all different
I will share with you the prototype Steven is making for Cheryl when he's finished!
My nephew Dale talking to dave Lucas about the boat he is building
Then dale, kathy and I went in for a tour of Helen's quilt room!!
Look at the view she has of the Braden River.... mmmmm!
Helen explaining about a collaborative quilt she made, The Fisherman.
She even took it out and showed it to us -beautiful and award winning!!
I could not resist taking this photo - batiks are my favorite fabrics.
This is the most beautiful quilt that Helen made with batiks
Helen says this quilt is Dave's favorite -so cool!
Steve and Dave take Starfish out of the water since we decided not to go out . . . .
Dave helps, driving my dad's old tractor.
Everyone, Kathy, Dan & both nephews were so pleased
to see dad's tractor still in use.
Later we came home and I opened the present Cheryl gave us:
a Christmas Cracker!
complete with crown!!
: ) a happy boxing day for us in Florida,
I hope all is well with you and yours, lenna
