Grass Lake RV Park – Antioch IL – 05Jul18

Kim, Kim and I headed to the VFW in McHenry for Raffle tickets. There are 20 of us going in on the big jackpot on Tuesday. Now Paul, Sam, Ray, John and I headed to the Sandbar Tiki for tacos. Thursday is boat races at Blarney Island. So Blarney was our next stop. We met lots of friends there and stayed for the races. Shortly afterwards, we headed back.

Today there are 4 boats heading to Blarneys about 30 of use. Mr Myers is playing and it’s always a fun time. Jim, Diane and Dennis came over and we all went in Paul and Chris’s boat. We had a few die hards left after Mr Myers finished. We saw a Bald Eagle in the tree by our canal on our way back. We stopped at Rosies for dinner with Sam, Jackie, Paul and Chris when we got back.

Finally!! A perfect morning, sunny, slight breeze and about 73 degrees. We got kidnapped and headed to Blarney Island for Key West Fest. Today a Buffett band Banana Wind is playing. There were 3 boats in our group about 25 people. We had a great time. Lots of dancing, limbo, and craziness. When the boats got back around 9pm, we grounded ourselves. Good choice, some stayed up until 430am.

More rain, more wind, more cold. We are DONE with this. There was a Friday party by Sam and Jackies. It’s raining again and John and I headed to the Port of Blarney to see our Key West friend John Solinski perform. He was supposed to be at the Island for Key West Fest but the weather moved him to the Port. We stopped at Rosie’s afterwards and our friends had moved there. We got in around 3am
