Sailing Community

We've met very few American sailors. We've traveled hundreds of miles and met only one American... And he wasn't really a sailor. Sticking feathers up your but does not make you a chicken. Owning a sailboat doesn't make you a sailor.

Most of the sailors we've met have been Canadian. We've also met a lot of Polish people, and English. One couple was from Germany.

Right now we are with an English couple, and a Canadian couple. We all have different accents, and different words. Ray and Irene, the English couple use words like "breaky, Butty, Sharabang." meaning "breakfast, Sandwich, and three dinghys in a row."
The Canadians use words like "aye?" as most everyone from Michigan already knows.
It's very fun.

Anyway here are some videos from over the past few weeks:

This is a video of our French Canadian buddy Gorden cooking dinner. He is a very goofy fun guy to hang out with. Loves a good party. Ladies man. Good cook.

This is just a video of a foggy day on the Erie Canal.

Ok so I had more videos, but I moved most of them to a spare hard drive because they were taking up too much space. So I guess I'm out of videos.

  1. 1. The French Canadian video sounds like you're in some crazy Vegas nightclub circa 1962. I didn't catch anything he said except "Gabrielle" and "C'est bon!"

    You should play him the French Canada Song from South Park.

  2. I dont know why I never saw any of these updates until tonight!! I have been checking and checking and checking.......crazy little guy in the computer! Anyway, I am so glad I got this now.....good info on the feathers.....at least I know what NOT to do with them :) You guys should have a little "guest book" to get the comments, names, addresses of everyone you meet. You probably are already doing that....just another part of the "aunt job".... :) A Joni
