Summer 2017 Fun - Family, Boats, Trips, Weddings, Babies

10 November 2017 | Indianapolis, IN
Summer
The summer went fast for Eileen and Charlie. No wonder...just of few of the fun times while home enjoying Indiana.

Not long after we got back in early April FUN POLICE made a trip to Eagle Creek. Many day sails and laughs were had with friends all summer long.



The queen of the good ship Eileen!


End of a good day...rolling sails. J24's are just the best boats for Eagle Creek.

Rolling Sails

We thrive on classics, our main transportation in 2017 were our old cars. They live to provide much enjoyment everywhere we go!

Max - 1988 Volvo 240dl

1991 Miata

Year of the weddings was on Eileen's side of the family. First up was a trip to Pensacola, FL for grandson Austins & Taylor's wedding in a beautiful BIG house at the beach with beds for 28!

Austin & Taylor - May 5, 2017

We took a couple kayaks and an SUP to share in the gulf

Next up in Eileen's family is Madison. She and Jeff got married in Chicago in June.

Eileen and Maddy

We all stayed in a condo/house and had a great time with all the boys while the girls got ready. Breakfast with the guys.

Eileen, Charlie, Greg, Austin, Jordan & Hunter

On Charlie's side it was baby time. Cassie and Brad gave birth to WILBUR RAYMOND on September 29, 2017. The happy family


Brad, Cassie, Wilbur & Elmer

And did we say BABIES? Yes, I think so. Great Grand Baby Boy is coming in Eileen's family in January to Austin & Taylor. AND, grand baby boy to Charlie's in April to Carly and Matt. Boys...yes we have lot's of boys!

Indy is summer is 500 time. Yes we do that too. While we don't go to the INDY500 we do see the Gran Prix.

Practice day for the 500

We also go sailing allot. Here we are on Meredith's Catalina 25 on a glorious day

Meredith, Eileen & Charlie

There's lots of family time too
Charlie & Elmer - Indians Baseball Game

Sandbox Time


The Traubs, Carly/Matt/Charlie live on the Brehop Farm properties. Lot's of visits, meals and time to spend with grandson Charlie. Here is a visit by tractor.



And hanging out with Grandpa Charlie




And Family Birthday parties at the river resort
Zach's 17th!

or at a local restaurant


We have to earn our cruising kitty by working some. Here we are set up selling "stuff" at ECSC

Eagle Creek Sailing Club - ECSC Regatta & Beach Party

Then there's the annual NHT (nursing home tour) for the guys on Joe's Gozzard, "Interlude" to the north channel. 10 days of sailing, some 350 miles, 75% at least under sail. Where the wind blew we went. No destinations in mind. Big breakfasts thanks to Jimmy and Dan. Big dinners with all all contributing with some cocktails and beer thrown in for fun!

Interlude - 1988 Gozzard 36

Eileen has a resort on White River in Indianapolis. The river is another of Indy's best kept secrets. It's a linear neighborhood where everybody almost knows everyone for 8 miles. And what's the main mode of transportation?

A 1965 Hydrodyne!!! "Radar Love"

And look who gets to drive!
Charlie at the wheel

And when speed boat is not in the water...there is FUN GUS - Hobie Outfitter for 2.

or a Stand Up Paddle Board
SUP with Taylor aboard

Charlie doesn't live on the water. He lives on a farm with tractors!

This is the newest of the fleet. 1961 David Brown 995, 64hp beast.

Maintaining 30+ acres is allot of seat time. If it's not on BIG David it's on LITTLE David

or the best of them all...

The summer of 2017 was a time to see something that doesn't happen much, a SOLAR ECLIPSE! Eileen and Charlie took a road trip to Cave In Rock, IL right on the Ohio River at the point of Totality.

Cave In Rock, IL

It's hard to describe the experience. Was it worth it? You betcha says Eileen!



As it got closer to time to leave we found time to run a regatta at ECSC with Meredith and Gordo. It was a windy and wild regatta but fun! Here's the RC crew
