Frozen Watermelon

One of our favorite snacks was frozen watermelon. It's really easy to make, as you just need to cube watermelon and put it in a ziplock bag in the freezer. You can take it on walks on a hot day, or put it in a smoothie. Yum. Watermelon ice.

I am just adding a recipes page to this blog. You can see some of the recipes we used to eat on the tiny solar houseboat.

Good-bye to Wake with the Sun for the season, Farewell Champlain

Well, we did it. We had one last swim in Lake Willoughby, and then stopped by Martha's Diner in Coventry, before driving through the Jay State Forest and back to New England Powerboat Marina in N. Hero, where we took the boat out. Bob, the builder, met us there with the trailer just as the house was hanging in mid-air, waiting to be put down. That evening we stayed at a lovely inn called the Thomas Mott Homestead Bed and Breakfast, and while Bob and Claude finished taking the boat apart, I headed out on my bike to see a bit of Isle La Motte.

Here are some of the last photos. I am still planning to add some videos, and a new page for recipes, so if you care to, please subscribe to the blog with the link to the right side of this page.

More soon, I hope. Best wishes.
