What's in a Name - The Buena Vista

We all knew this would come up sooner or later. It's the question, "how did you come up with the name Buena Vista?" Well, here's your answer...

You see, Buena Vista is a real place! If you take a quick peak at the map below you will find that it's right in the middle of Lyons, GA (where my parents live) and Montgomery, AL (where my grandparents live).


While the location is not important for any reason it has become some what of a running joke within the family. Since the town is in the absolute middle of nowhere it has become common place (for some unknown reason) to call when you're passing through like you were passing a major landmark.

What it feels like you're passing...

What you're really passing...

I know, I know. You're asking what all of this has to do with the boat. It all got tied together when we were just finishing putting the mast up the first day as the sun was setting over the marshes of Coastal Georgia. In that moment someone said it was beautiful and out came the phrase "Buena Vista."

It was a perfect fit.

Good Times,

- Jake
