The Citroën

It’s a given that our neighboring boat owner Steve, who loves all things vintage, would text “is the Citroën in the parking lot yours?” since David and I are the only hardcore old-car and old-boat people here at the marina.  But alas, no! it is not our Citroën.  We’ve enjoyed seeing it in the parking lot though.  The French comp to Buttercup’s Swedish and of similar vintage, I wonder if the two cars gossip at night about the changes over time, unleaded fuels, the EU, and such. The particular Citroën DS was designed in the early 60’s and was built through the mid-70’s whereas Buttercup’s Saab model 99 design was late 60’s and the design built into the late 1980’s though only imported into the USA in the 70’s.

A day in the life…time lapse videos

Sometimes we do time lapse videos using the GoPro camera.  We set it up on the boom gallows where it gets to take a shot every few minutes … until the battery dies or we remember to turn it off for the day.  I decided to post these videos from time to time.  Here’s a a look at one.  This is one of our day as we are going from Sandy Beach to Wachusett in Glacier Bay National Park. Six hours in 28 seconds.
