My friend John Kerschbaum in Minnesota has had some challenges
getting boats in the water this year.
Snow kept falling and time kept passing.
Finally he was able to get boats in the water, but he told me that
in twelve years he's always been able to get his main gondola in the water
before May 1st...until this year.
But things are back to normal now and couples are enjoying the waters
of the St. Croix on the beautiful gondolas of Gondola Romantica.
Recently John posted this great photo on Facebook, with the caption:
"Don't let a little rain get in the way of your fun!"
A closer look reveals the freshly placed engagement ring on her finger.
Yes, things are definitely back to normal on the gondolas of Minnesota.
