We have got a new boat. This boat already has name, it is called Shamby.



We collected the boat from the marina we bought it from last weekend. Then we had to take it up the river to our moorings. We started out Saturday afternoon, by the time we reached the marina we were going to spend the night at it had started to get dark.



Then it took all of Sunday to reach the marina. I spent some of the time looking out of the back of the boat.




Some of the time looking out the front of the boat.



Some of the time I spent sleeping.




Then we moored up Shamby and went home. I was glad to have my feet back on solid ground after all that bobbing up and down.

What a great life you have, Simba! And your captain is quite handsome, for a human. Think you could sneak the boat out and take us all on a cruise?

Thank you all for your concern. Luckily we haven't been effected by the floods. Surrounding areas are not doing so well.

Congrats on such great new boat!! I need to keep this post under the radar though--otherwise this will be the next 'toy' my dad will want..funded by the money tree I pee on everyday of course, he he.

Hey Simbas,

What a cooools floatin' box. Bet it goes reeeallys fast. Bendin' your ears right backs.

You should bring your box over here to my place. We've got overs 1,2 1,2 1000 miles of waterways just 1,2 1,2 two miles aways. Then you can go up to Sacramentos and down to San Franciscos and stuffs.

And you should be ables to float out any floods that come your ways.

Are you a pirates?

Wuufs!
