August 23, 2014 – Pentwater Wooden Boat Show

We attended a wooden boat show in

Pentwater Township Sign, Pentwater, MI - 2014-08-23
a small waterfront community 11 miles north of our campground in Silver Lake. Both the hand-built boats (some taking their owners 3-4 years to complete) and the production models were beautiful … and some brought back memories of the years growing up when our family summered on my dad’s boats on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
