Raft-Up, Raft-Up, Raft-Up!


Oh My!! What a weekend!!


Food, fun, rain, blackout, a salad tornado, generators, flashlights and fans, creating the biggest swimming pool on the bay, John & Richard's synchronized dancing.... a fun time was had by all!  


Raft-Up Dinner by Cell Phone Light



Thank you to the more than 35 volunteers (old members and new) who pitched in to help clean, decorate, prep food, assemble salads, run around, serve food, do dishes, haul trash, clean and clean again!  Your hard work is what makes this weekend come together! 


The Raft Comes together



Also, a big thank you to the Sea Scouts and their advisers who built the raft and kept us safe.

This mother manatee and her calf were nursing in the BCYC marina basin this afternoon.  According to Wikipedia, newborns weigh about 66 pounds; this one could not have been more than that.  Please be careful!
