Happy Birthday, Bob! (50th post)

I haven’t been able to post for a while because the Internet speed at the marina has slowed down (!), so I’m taking advantage of being at Leo’s house to put up a quick one.

We celebrated Bob’s birthday last night with Leo and Joan at the Sailor’s Return restaurant, which is right next to the Sunset Bay marina. We ate and drank excellent food and watched the sun set by the boats. A great time was had by all!

We’re planning to haul her out and put her on the hard next week (how’s that for nautical jargon?). We’ve pretty much decided on the boatyard we’ll be leaving her in. It’s very secure and not too far from where we are.

There are just a few (!) things to be done before and after that. We have to take the sails off the boat, change the oil in the two diesel engines, take all the canvas off the boat, wipe the inside of the boat with vinegar, put bay leaves in the cabinets…etc etc.

Then we can come home!
