A Boat Ride on the Beautiful Penobscot Bay

Posted by Francesca

Yesterday, our blog was all about how tired we were after returning from our weekend in Maine.  Many of you were wondering what we did that tuckered us out.  Well, let me share some of that with you.  Boat rides are exhilarating!

Hey, Captain Bryan! Untie those lines!  We want to go for a boat ride!  We love Martha's boat, Skylands II.

Oh, Martha, you're at the helm.  Let's getting going right now!

Say, he's a friendly guy and just look at how much fun they seem to be having!  That's also a very beautiful boat.  It looks like another Hinkley picnic boat.

Oh wow!  Here we go!

Franny, there are strict rules about shoes on Martha's boat.  Nothing but boat shoes are allowed.

It sure is beautiful out here on the water.

Sharkey, it's comforting that we have plenty of lifesavers on board.  Just hope we never have to use them!

Sharkey, I'm so glad we brought our camera so that we can blog about this.  Just look at the amazing scenery!  Do you see any bald eagles flying around?

What a beautiful day for a sail.  That must be a regatta.

Martha, watch out for that channel marker!  And remember - red right returning!  We don't want to get lost.

Excuse me, Martha - I don't see anything resembling dog food in the picnic basket.  Did you forget our lunch?

  • Ahhh a boat ride no wonder you all were so tired. What a beautiful day for boating around the harbor. I must say I am a bit concerned that neither of you two had on doggie life jackets. :shock: Frenchies and swimming is a no and not sure how a Chow Chow puppy would handle 'pup overboard' so please be careful.

    Did you all do something special for MommyMartha? She looks like she had a great day.

  • Good Morning Girls
    Looks like you had a wonderful day for a boat ride. Hey Franny who had the stinky feet that you were stuck smelling? And don't tell me Martha forgot to pack you a lunch that would be so unlike her. I'm sure there was a little something for you both in the basket.

    My mom use to have a boat she loved to go fishing. Her boat was called "Irish Eyes". She got disgusted with her golf game one day so she bought a boat. That was before I was born so I never had the pleasure of a boat ride. However, a boat may be in my future. I think I heard her telling dad her golf game sucks and she quit. (Yahoo - don't tell her I said that means more time with me) So that could mean another boat.

    Martha - Happy Birthday!! Your birthday cakes sure did look yummy. Did you share any with the girls?

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    It sure looks like you two had a wonderful time on vacation. It’s been too hot here to go out on the boat. Looks as if daddy will have to take up golf instead. But wait, he did that already and found it wasn’t his cup of tea, or something like that. I thought that playing golf was hitting a little white ball around. Now he says it’s a drink??? People are funny I guess when they talk. Daddy gets a little green when on a boat sometimes. The lake around here doesn’t have those “BIG” waves so he doesn’t turn green. Time for a nap.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • In style on a Chris Craft...lovely! well we can all see how the other side lives...ahhh you lucky Frenchies! Enjoy it, as indeed you are special and very lucky to be part of MS houshold, oh did I say that before?

  • Hi Girl Friends &GK, Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos of your great time on Martha's beautiful boat with her at the helm. I've never been on a boat before and I would probably be rather nervous, but would go anyway so I could be with my Mom. Have a great day now that you are all rested up. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hi
    I was wondering where mommy Martha found Francesca. I recently lost my frenchie, Sophie, to cancer. Do you know a good breeder? shelter? or a frenchie that needs a home to rule?
    Please let me know. South Carolina does not have a frenchie population.
    Thank you
    Penny
