Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

Classic Car Show

Florida is probably second only to California when it come to classic auto shows. Here in Brandon, FL is no different as the First Baptist Church of Brandon sponsored their annual Classic Car Show and Family Fun Fest this weekend. I went wild with my camera with these classic and antique beauties. Here's some of the pictures that I took that should bring back memories to many.

This front end belongs to a 1937 Ford Fordor.

These two pictures are of a 1965 Ford Mustang owned by Marshall and Pam Harrington.

The Schooner "Ellida"

The Schooner "Ellida" is an 80 foot John Alden designed schooner built in 1922. The owners and crew sails her down from Newfane, New York to the Caribbeans just before winter sets in and then sails her back up to Lake Ontario just before hurricane season. The owners charters her for day cruises, sunset cruises, and excursion cruises.

Sailing on a classic schooner like Ellida is becoming a very rare opportunity for many people.

Becoming part of history by sailing and cruising in safety and comfort on board the beautiful and historic wooden schooner Ellida. This wonderful windjammer comfortably sleeps ten passengers plus crew in five guest staterooms.

In the Castine Classic Yacht Race, Schooner Ellida is tacking toward the finish line off Curtis Island, Camden.

Last evening Barbie and I went for a sunset cruise aboard the Ellida on Tampa Bay offshore from St. Petersburg. We both had a wonderful time.

While in Florida the Ellida berths at the Dolphin docks near the St. Petersburg Pier.

Ken poses for Barbie before we set sail.

At last Capt. Ken takes the helm as we sail off into the sunset.

UPDATE: Captain Pete Peterson crewed on the Ellida for many years and has shared the link to his web site for more pictures of the Ellida at
