Loopers don’t stop hanging out once the Great Loop is over…!
We had our Looper buddies Bob and Liz (from the boat Knot Sew Easy)visit from Grand Haven, MI! What a blast visiting with our friends! It was like we never were apart, we just picked up where we left off and enjoyed our short time together.
While doing the Great Loop, we met Bob and Liz on the Rivers (only a month after we began our trip) and traveled with them for 80% of our 13 months of travels. They were the couple we shared our good and bad times. Not only did we spend most meals together, they helped us with our dog Crocket, Bob was there to assist when Ben needed to go to the hospital and Liz was my go-to for girl talk. After spending so much time together, they became not only our buddies but family. The friendships you make along the Loop are pretty special. Not many people can say they traveled over 6,000 miles on a boat and we shared most of those 6,000 miles with Bob and Liz.
So we were thrilled, anxious and honored to have our buddies visit us here in Door County.
We spent our time sightseeing, eating, catching up, playing cards and ping pong and just some good-old-relaxing. Time went by way too fast and before we knew it, we were waving (maybe a few tears also) ‘see you later’ in the driveway. Our Great Loop travels brought us more than we ever thought, it brought us our dear friends.
|Crocket was so happy to be with his boat buddies in a car!|
|I think Bob is excited for some Ribs…Liz feels the same about the twice baked potatoes!|
|Notice the print of our boat on the mantle…Thank you Skinners! We love it!|
The experiences we participated will forever be lovely memories.
|We have too much fun together!|
