Boat Restoration

Rob has been restoring an old 1961 Boston Whaler. The Boat belongs to our Cousins Jen & Frank, who got the boat handed down from our Uncle Lenny...it's a family boat. Frank told Rob to take the boat and keep in his warehouse to play around with and use it if he wants....WELL you know Rob and boats, he not only played around with the boat but he gave it a complete makeover. He has had a great time bringing this old boat back to life....Check it out

Before Pictures

The entire bottom had to be re-done - This is the AFTER of the bottom

The Trailer also got a face lift

Tennessee .........

We had a wonderful time in Tennessee. It was my first time to Tennessee and Rob's first time actually spending time there and not just driving through. We fell in love with the place!! It so beautiful with the mountains all around.
It took exactly 13 hours to get to our hotel in Knoxville. I drove the first 8 hours and Rob drove the rest. It was an easy drive until we got to Atlanta in the middle of rush hour, other than that it was great.
First we surprised our Niece Deena at her job Friday night. We got to town just in time to visit her before they closed. She works at Buddy's BBQ...and it was yummy too!!
Saturday we went to Deena's and hung out there for a litte while, they have such a great place. They even have horses in thier back yard!!
Then Deena took us site seeing. Our first stop was a senic route through the hills of the Great Smokey Mountains. It was gorgeous!!!
We saw lots of people tubing down the rivers. (very cool). We went to Gaitlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We visted a really cool aquarium in Gatlinburg and the Dukes of Hazard Muesum.....Rob made us go in there...LOL Then we all went to dinner Saturday night with Deena's family. We had a blast!!
Sunday Rob spent the day with Harry & Cody on the boat and Deena and I went to Cade's Cove in the Smokey Mountains National Park......it's breath taking. We saw 7 Black Bears, several Deer, Wild Turkeys and three snakes!!
It was a short trip but we can't wait to go back!!!!
Here are the pictures.........
Black Bears... We saw several and three cubs
