I’ve actually accomplished a couple more items on my day zero list! It feels like it’s been forever since I got to check something off.


Celebrate my 40th Birthday

On June 6th and 8th I celebrated my 40th birthday with friends

and Jeff, Gracie & I celebrated with a picnic.


Go on a Boat Excursion

Yesterday we went on an Eagle Watching boat tour.

It was pretty cool to see all the eagles…

but I didn’t get any good pictures of them.

Jeff may have, and if so I’ll share them with you at a later date.

The 90 minute boat ride was fun though.

If you’d like to take a river tour the next time you’re in Red Wing…

Just call to make a reservation…

Here’s the information:

Rusty’s River Rides

There are sunset cruises available

and you can charter the boat for $150 an hour.

    Love the vase of iris in the table! Did you like the boat tour? I think the best one that I’ve been on was in Brisbane (perhaps because I finally got to sit down!).

      It was very relaxing. I love being out on the water. I dream of having a boat someday 🙂

    Boat rides are my favorite thing on earth!! Have been on many lake ones, and a handful of ocean rides. LOVE them!!!! I really like the bigger, more relaxing rides down the river. So calming…

      I love them too Kimber. Do you still have a boat? If so, I bet you get a lot of use out of it this time of year! Lucky!

    Not a boat of my own, my parents have a pontoon and the ex has a fishing boat. I can use either just about whenever I want to, but this year I’ve passed on it so I can stay home and work on the house every chance I get. I figure I’ll relax next year. Although I’m planning to take the boys on a tour down the river one of these weekends. The big river paddleboats are so fun – and enjoying food & music at the same time is memorable!

      I think so too. Jeff and some friends of ours treated me to a dinner cruise on the Andiamo when I turned 30 (I think the theme was Jazz.) Very fun!
