When Wood Meets Water

There is so much tranquility early in the morning.

Before all the humans are out, the sounds of nature are pretty awesome.  In this case and on this day (Saturday June 11, 2016) my hubby and I took a Sunrise boat cruise.

These shots were taken at 6AM.  My main goal on this day was to beat the crowds that would soon surround the Annual Classic and Wooden Boat Show.  I think I succeeded!

Antique & Classic Wooden Boat Show ~ June 7th & 8th ~ Lake Arrowhead

The 2014 Annual Antique & Classic Wooden Boat Show will take place Saturday, June 7th & Sunday, June 8th at the Lake Arrowhead Village

Antique boats will vie for trophies and can be viewed up close at the Lake Arrowhead Village docks.

On display throughout the village will be vintage woodie cars, hot rods, antique wooden boat models and early outboard motors. Antique boats will also be for sale throughout the village.

The feature boat of this year’s show will be Empress, a 1938 Gar Wood 22-foot model 915 Streamliner. Only 9 of these rare beauties were ever built. The Streamliner was intended to revolutionize the runabout market with the practicality of three cockpits forward, with seating for eleven persons in a 22-foot boat. The rear engine and V-drive configuration was very unusual in the 1930s.

The show is produced by the Rim of the World Historical Society with the assistance of the Antique & Classic Boat Society, the Arrowhead Lake Association, the Lake Arrowhead Village, the Up The Hill Woodie Club, Street Rods Forever and the Trompers.
