The Broom family takes a break from the rat race aboard SV Dilly Dally.
You ain't been around if you ain't been aground
08/04/2011, On a sand bar

About 6 pm on Wednesday August 3rd - Dilly Dally found herself hard aground on a sand bar! After working for awhile, the crew decided to have dinner and call it a night. On Thursday a.m. after more futile attempts - Tow Boat US was called. Turns out Dilly Dally was in Canadian waters and had to contact the Canadian Coast Guard. It was a bit of work but they made it off the sand bar about 3:15 pm on Thursday.

Oh no! But glad to see you're off and back underway!

Somewhere in Lake Erie

Looks like the Crew will be arriving in Buffalo, NY sometime tomorrow - Thursday August 4th.
From what I have heard, it's been very good motoring weather :-)
No storms to speak of and nothing broken! Sounds like a success to me. I can't wait to have the family all together on Sunday. Then the FUN really starts!

Thanks for following us. Remember, once I am on board the postings will be a bit less frequent as they will depend on finding internet access!
