Floating home to the goodship Channel Princess with Terran and Andrew #riversignal photo: Andrew

Mom joins the expedition for a week, crossing the Albemarle and chugging north to Norfolk

Putting the princess back in the water after the removal of some 3.5 kajillion barnacles.

Spent the day running up the long and winding Bay River to a little rundown boatyard. Channel Princess gets to live out its longstanding dream of being a spaceship. Now it’s time to scrape barnacles

Late afternoon run for gas and ice cream sammies #riversignal

In my defense, it seemed like a far more casual and unassuming pose at the time. #riversignal #leahutaffisland #riverboat #gofreemylittledove
