We’re watching the weather now, looking for a window. However, the boat isn’t quite ready. We’re decluttering our cabins, removing extra things that won’t be required for a trip. We want to lighten our load of junk (How in the HELL do you collect junk on a boat??? I think most of the stuff I’ve taken off isn’t really necessary for the boat, just conveniences we use day to day.)
A trip to Colorado last month was to visit my doctor and renew my Blood Pressure prescriptions. After the heart attack and open heart surgery a couple of years ago, no more chances. We also got to visit our new, baby Great Grand Daughter! She is beautiful and her parents are good kids. I hope they do well in life and raise that baby well.

Back at the boat we started the work to reverse all we did for the hurricane watches, putting sails back up, untying all the things we tied down, strapping down things that we don’t want moving about, and removing a few other things from the boat like some of our winter clothing we won’t be needing much in the south.
I hope to have all the little chores done by Wednesday or Thursday this week, and JoAnne will be doing some grocery shopping while I finish up engine work (cleaning, tightening, checking fluid levels etc) and make sure all the rigging is good. So far, so good.
The primary plan is to head for Marsh Harbor, Abacos and range in and out of that area to see things. We may take some time to go down the coast too though, and we’re planning at least one “shake down” cruise before we set out into the ocean again.
That’s all for now. More to follow later.
