We will stay here until the weather window presents itself. Glen’s first retirement paycheque wasn’t deposited along with Pam’s regular check so, upon phoning we found out that a couple of minor issues on the retirement application forms were holding us up. Now we have to get to a Staples or business center of some kind to download forms, sign them properly and fax them back to PensionsBC.
Had dinner with Sid and Linda from Quest – great to get to know them better.
Cousin Duane has been trying to hook up with us but we were surprised on Saturday morning to get a call from him saying he was 10 minutes away. He doesn’t screw around – when he says he’s coming… he is coming. So Glen motored to the dock and picked up Duane and his two girls, Katie and Tara. They’d had a rough night so they sacked out for a couple of hours while we putzed around doing little chores. Then, Duane took Pam and Glen out to deal with the pension issue in his rental car and – on an impulse Glen decided to purchase a Honda generator. They are ubiquitous and it seemed like a great solution to our power problems. So now we have power from the engine alternator, from the solar panels and a generator backup if we need it.

Sid and Linda touched bases to let us know they were going to take off at first light to Ft. Lauderdale. Had supper with Duane and the kids, watched a movie and then went to bed.
|Tara and Duane decided to swim with the manatees.|

|Off on their adventure!|
The Godfreys are off on their adventure – heading to see Aunt Lisa in Ft. Lauderdale and then on to Key West. Duane lives life large and his two girls are awesome, adaptable, easygoing travelers.
