Social distance boating the new norm. I am sure many of you have been itching to get on the boats, just like every year! But with the Covid 19 and the stay at home order, I think it is 10 times worse. We went out this last Saturday and it was very interesting. Everyone has the same thing on their minds and rightfully so: Stay 6 feet away and keep cleaning your hands and everything you touch. That is one good thing I guess with the boating world - it really can be your own space. Jump in the boat with your home crew and get a mental break if only for a little while. It was a very welcome change of scenery. We brought out a bunch of good food and some drinks. Made a little run to Streich's. It was great to see old friends even at a distance. It really helps to take the mental edge off. I am not going to condone going out. My belief is to use your common sense, keep your distance, keep cleaning everything including washing/sanitizing your hands. Use a zoom lens to take photos. Reality is we should be trying to clean and sanitize all the time. Again just my opinion. I am sure some of you will be mad that we went at all. I understand and respect your opinions. I do not take this virus lightly at all and feel horrible for the loss of life and for all the front line workers. My hats off to all of you.
I hope you enjoy the photos. See Photo Gallery for more photos.
