The best part of the Loop is traveling to new places on your boat and meeting new people.
The worst part of the Loop is missing family and friends.
When you can combine the two, pulling your boat into a new port to see family and friends, it is better than the best and Port Washington was just that! My nephew Peter and his wife Kelly and their new baby girl, Emmy came to visit us in Port Washington (Kelly's hometown) and we were so thrilled to see them and meet Emmy!
Planning dates for folks to visit us on the Loop has been a challenge since we don't really know when we'll arrive somewhere or how long we'll stay, so we felt so fortunate that it worked for Kelly, Peter and Emmy to drive over from their home in Delafield, WI to visit us. Meeting Emmy was so awesome! Tom has always said, in regard to grandchildren, "the people we are going to love the most, aren't even here yet". Well, they are starting to come. All of our nieces and nephews are having babies and it's wonderful!
