Old Friends at Clayton Boat show

This was a great year to visit the Antique Boat Museum in Clayton NY, so Gretchen and I circled the lake to make a lovely weekend trip out of it. If you have not visited the ABM, it is a most amazing place even if your interest in boats is moderate. The history of the Thousand Islands is beautifully laid out through it's boats which of course made life on the islands possible in the first place. Here's a quick tour of the show.

GM really loving all these boats

 For me the best part was running into old friends....Rebecca who is now the ED of the museum - Cheers! and these three....
