Great news Addy! I was happy when I found a good person to buy everything from my one pond.
I am the worse seller, good buyer, bad seller. This was such a blessing! He was so impressed with this hobbyist hives he is starting a new bee yard with the 14. Sad but so happy!

Now my neighbor and I need to gather the STUFF, all the stuff you end up using for bees, buying for bees etc etc. I have it in a van, in the basement, under the deck, in a spare bedroom on and on.

Cherish the good days @addy1
Speaking as one who has . docking by your self can become second nature. But unfortunately mother nature can add her own twist to a day . And at that point trying to dock alone can become very dangerous.
Forget docking you go out in a relatively large body of water on the wrong day, you can put your life at risk if you don’t know what you are doing. They put out small craft warnings for a reason. Been on the water pretty much everyday my whole life running boats and equipment, the things I’ve seen…. The lack of respect for Mother Nature and open water is appalling, even by seasoned boaters and unfortunately can be a lesson learned the real hard way, where you don’t get a second chance.

@addy1 Good for you on having captains teach you how to safely handle and run your boat, you never know when it may be necessary.

I have a deep respect for the water, for the bay. We have a 21 foot boat, it never goes out if there are any warnings and even though we never travel miles out. Did a lot of diving and the water can always surprise you. I like being alive lol

This boat, it won't go out without a captain, prob for length of time we have the boat I may have someone captain us out of the slip then I could cruise it around for a bit. Call when coming back to put us back in the slip. We are right near the fuel dock a straight pull in.

And then only with good weather, flat seas, low winds lol ie perfect water.

Last night Watched a bunch of fireworks off in the distance went off for 45 minutes. Tonight sitting in the upper deck and will watch the Annapolis show.

A ton of boaters go out into the bay, anchor and watch the show. We don't too much drinking and a load of boats heading back at the end.

You don't look for stuff others are posting. You friend them and their stuff auto shows on your page. You then just scroll your page and it's easy as pie! Reply back and forth when you want to and disregard what you don't care about. Never mind the evil facebook fact checkers and if they send you to jail enjoy the relaxing rest from it all,lol!

Tonight, moving bee hives, my girls are gone! Waited for almost dark and dark, smoked, sprayed ice water on them to send them back into the hives. They were bearding since it is hot. True bee keeps, no gloves, stung a few times. I gave the indicators on the hives, which were testy, which would ignore you, etc etc.

Still very healthy full of bees and heavy with stores.

@addy1 I know it is best for you to let them go to a new home but it is still kinda sad to see them go. Glad they went to experienced bee keepers where they will continue to thrive!
It is weird not to hear or see bees drinking from the ponds, eating off the plants, flying everywhere. Did not see one honey bee today. But necessary. :(
