Launch Day

Yesterday's launch of Fearless.



Henri heading to the dock to pick me up.


Once on board, we take a test drive around the harbor. It's good to be back out among all the other smiling faces.


We had a gorgeous day for launching.



And a good friend was aboard to make sure the installation of our recently rebuilt transmission needed no adjustments. Because we tend to be a little "boat numb" at times.



By the time the sun was setting on Sorrento Harbor all was well with Fearless.




Here she is back on her mooring where we are very happy to have her.




We are so blessed to experience such wonderful times such as these.

Jo - LOL! I forgot to tell you I wasn't at the dock yet because I was still taking pictures from the boat launch!

Teri - Yes, our skiff has a name too...it's "Chowdahbucket"!

Thanks everyone for your sweet comments! ~Lili

Lili - you are so lucky to live at the waters edge and to be able to enjoy a life in and around such a beautiful place. LOVE the boat - tell Henri - I am expecting a ride on my next trip up!

Hey Lili! It has been so crazy here lately that I haven't been visiting my favorite blogs as much lately so I just got caught up on yours! Your photos are all beautiful as always! We should have stopped in to see you while we were up in Maine!

Dear Lillie said...

I am jealous that you get to LIVE there!

Like Peter Design said...

Love the pics! I was just up in Maine about two weeks before the Dear Lillie Gals, we take turns :) It is such a beautiful state, that's for sure!

I was just thinking..., in about six weeks the summer will already be winding down..., and you just launched your boat. The scenery is as always just so gorgeous!
