It’s a wrap! Another successful show.

Wow, what a whirlwind of a weekend. My husband and I are lucky enough to be friends with the dock master at the Boardwalk Marina, and because of this we are able to help out with the Wooden Boat Show this year. This was just our second year doing it, but it is such a blast, despite the heat this year.
 
We get to talk with the boat owners, help them dock and push off and generally just make sure they’re having a good time so they’ll come back again. Their boats are just stunning and everyone who comes enjoys looking at them and dreaming about having one some day. It’s quite the lifestyle choice, I think I could get on board. Literally. 
 
The event was a total success and we are all so grateful for those who came from out of the area to show their boats. 
 

Next year’s event will be an international show, meaning more boats, more people and hopefully cooler weather since it will be a little later. Take a look at my photos from this year above. Enjoy!

27th Annual Wooden Boat Show

This summer is flying by faster than I can blink! I apologize for being so behind in my posts, but unfotunately this isn’t my only job.


So I know I say this every time a big event is going on, but there are just so many unique things to do in the summer here. I promise I’ll exaggerate a lot less in the winter.

But… This is one of my favorite weekends of the summer because it’s the classic wooden boat show. People from all over the country collect to display their beautiful wooded boats down on the boardwalk. This is a free event so there really isn’t an excuse to skip out. Unless you’re not a fan of heat stroke.

Here are a few photos I took from last year’s event. They’re unedited and from my phone so I hope they don’t let you down. This was before Instagram. At least it was before I had Instagram.

Hope to see you all there! I’ll be volunteering at the event. We’ll be the ones in highlighter-yellow shirts. Can’t miss us!
