Home for the summer

We are sitting in Dallas-Fort Worth airport, waiting for our flight.  Had a glitch in Miami so we didn’t get to our hotel until 4:15 this morning.  Up at 6:30 for the shuttle back to DFW.  Didn’t get our moneys worth for that bed.

Shutting the boat down is hot, dirty, hard work.  Better now that we are at North Sound but still…

Pam is a Trojan.  She works like a dog, does more than her share, even after almost knocking herself out on the bimini frame.  She keeps on sewing up protective covers for things… weird shapes and connectors.

I’d like for her to go home 2 weeks before me so she doesn’t have to go through the gruelling “shut down checklist”… but it wouldn’t get done properly.

So she’s stuck here with me…. thankfully.

Time to come out

So we are done for the year, Dear Reader.  Home to Abbotsord for a summer of family and friends.  What a life!


Cheers for now.

  1. I'd be interested in knowing who told you how "EASY" it is to paint the boot stripe!

    My guess is I know him, he has never been where you are and has no experience in hot (Way Humid) conditions doing this!

    Stripe looks great......
