our final day, in between packing and cleaning, i had to finish up the raft.
there were just a few finishing touches to add - a hitching ring:
and a ladder:
then away we go! we loaded on the anchors, paddled out 50 feet, and dropped anchor. then rested in the sun, while the kid swam back and forth to the dock a few times.
so nice to look out from the cottage and see our raft floating in the sun!
