Spring Has Sprung and the Boats are Back in Lake Geneva!

The boats are visible, lined up at the docks in this shot of the beach.

I posted on The Barn Door blog earlier this week about the Lake Geneva Cruise Line's boat returning
to their summer home at the Riviera docks in Lake Geneva. What a joy it was to see pics of their beautiful excursion boat moving through waters that were finally free of ice!

Below is the beginning of my blog post. Click on the link to go to the actual blog where you can see pictures of the fleet.

As most Barn Door contributors can attest to, we in the Midwest have never been so anxious for spring as we’ve been this year, and it was very late in coming. Here in the Chicago area, just a week ago, we had another bout of measurable snow. It was mostly gone by the next day but even so, we were not happy campers!

Finally, by Easter weekend, the temperatures had warmed, and one sure sign of spring for me was when I checked the webcam that overlooks my hometown of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin’s lake front and saw  the excursion boats had returned to start another season of tours of the lakeshore.

I just finished reading "Love Finds You in Lake Geneva". That is where I found love also. I grew up there from age 5 and married my H.S. sweetheart (he is 3 yrs. older). I worked in the Riviera Bathhouse in the summer and we danced to Glenn Miller band, Louie Armstrong,and others. My Mom sold tickets in the box office. I graduated in 1957 and would love to be able to communicate with you. We live in El Cajon, CA and that is another story! Jeanette Curran

Jeanette, I remember you! I was still at Central when you graduated but I remember the short older girl who was dating that very tall good looking guy :-) At least that is who I'm remembering! I'm looking for a way to connect with you via email and can't get through through the link of "Mom" to get to a contact for you. I hope you see this.

I'm so glad you read my book. :-)

Email me at pamsmeyers at gmail dot com if you see this. Thanks! I look forward to connecting!
