It sounded like a nice get away weekend. “Let’s go spend the weekend on the houseboat in Chattanooga.” That was before it turned out to be the COLDEST weekend of the year! The concern was not the time spent actually ON the boat. It was the LONG walk out the dock. And not just for us, but for our 2 furbabies. With temps in the 20’s, we trekked out the dock. The dogs were wearing their sweaters and wrapped in a blanket in the dock cart. And to our surprise, we were not the only ones crazy enough to be spending time at the dock that weekend. There was even a ghost hunters group that spent time over night in 17 degree temps doing a ghost tour in the old haunted dam.
Even though it was cold, there is just something wonderful about being on the water. Being able to look out at the calm water and enjoy the beautiful scenery is so peaceful. Until you have to bundle up in layers and walk the dogs. But even then, it was a good weekend. We all survived. At least it wasn’t snowing. Happy Boating where ever you are.
