I wrote a post a couple of weeks ago about life being a Journey, not a Destination.
Hope you read it. Because it certainly is true.
I started a job here at the marina a few days ago. Had about 8-9 work days so far, part time. I clean the docks, check boats, power towers, take out trash, open the “store”, close the store and a few other things, like handy-man things. I’ve repaired the golf cart ramp a couple of times, moved oyster shells, rocks, bricks, old wood, dirt, cleaned bathrooms and collected cans for some local charity.
It’s actually… FUN!
The best part? Cleaning bird poop off the docks.
Yep, no kidding. I get to be outside, walk around, walk past all the boats, check lines, discover problems, fix things… but the bird poop is the BEST!
It rots wood, and looks like… ummm…. crap. LOL It’s a crappy job, but someone has to do it!
Seriously, it’s nice being outside, and not staying inside the boat all the time. I get to meet new people all the time as well.
We are going to stay here for a few months, head down to the Bahamas and then come back after a few months.
So, I’ll invite our cruiser friends to South Harbour Village Marina to stop in and say “Howdy” over this season. We’re looking forward to the transients like us, passing through, headed north. A few are still headed south at this point, but some are already passing through on the way north.
I’ll see you on the docks!!!!
