A little while ago I went with my wonderful husband to the boat show. He goes with me to art galleries and the occasional craft show, so it was my turn.
There were so many boats. Sweet hubby was searching for one in particular the Tracker! The search was on. Imagine if you will , well you have to because the photo I took didn’t turn out….,an airplane hanger filled with boats . That’s a lot of boats!
We wandered through the huge exhibit. Stopping to watch a wake board exhibition. Sorry the photos are blurry. I think it was a bad photo day, giggle. Oh how I wish I had the balance for that. It looked so fun. Have you tried wake boarding?
Then we turned the corner and we found a cooking demonstration presented by Chef Bryan Woolley. He is a local celebrity chef who promotes heart healthy recipes, he’s a regular on our local news KUTV channel 2. I stayed and watched for a little bit, while sweet hubby wandered around some more. There’s a lot of wandering involved in going to the boat show. I wish I would have been wearing my pedometer.
Chef Bryan was very entertaining. I watched him make some delicious looking facacia bread. He was also demonstrating the proper way to choose a pineapple. Don’t pull on the tops ( if they come out easy it is ripe) that is a myth! Instead touch the pineapple gently. It should be firm but with a gentle press should yield slightly. If it’s soft or spongy, don’t buy it. Check the color you are looking for a golden yellow color with a bit of green around the bottom.
Then as we reached the end of an aisle,I swear I could hear sweet hubby’s heart beating…. there it was, the tracker! One in red and one in blue. Its a 17 foot, deep V, aluminum hull, dual console fishing boat. Robert ( my hubby) spoke with Fred, the owner of Freds Marine ( a local boat shop that has been in business for about 30 years) Fred was very cordial and took the time to speak to me too.
On the way out we stopped to check out the Can-Am Spyder roadster: three wheeled motorcycle, it s on my sweet hubby’s wish list too. Ahh boys and their toys.
I know you are wondering did we buy a boat?…nope….Maybe he will this summer. You know I will blog about it! But, we are always dreamers. I dream of having an English garden and a cottage by the water. He dreams of a fishing boat and a three wheel motorcycle. Giggle. It’s good to dream. What do you dream about?
