There's another sailboat anchored in here with us called Carpe' Diem. Nice looking boat - not sure but it may be a Morgan or Endeavor 30 something - nice lines to it. It looks like they hail from Holland, MI (hmmm, wonder if they're headed for the canal or back home). There's a nice sandy bottom for anchoring; a beach, park, water toy rental area and a marina (that is to small and shallow for us to get into) but even with all the wind we haven't moved while at anchor. I think I like these all chain anchor lines. Not much to do today but read and use up the rest of my battery on the computer.
Kinda funny - Wayne hooked up the 12volt for my adapter that I used before but it won't charge my batteries - there's something different but I don't know what. We plug in the puter and the charge light blinks, but never charges. He spent all day wiring it for me too . This time I have Internet access (more so that last year) and now, not unlimited computer access - It may be back to the pen and paper journal for me and I'll type up things as I can... I feel bad that he spent all day wiring it and it doesn't work - strange how the computer battery won't charge but the fans work on it... When I try to use the computer - it kicks off the 12volt adapter. Greg or anyone else - if you're reading this, any suggestions?
We now have the wash down pump working too, so after dinner and a bottle of wine, things quieted down on the beach so we went up front and hose-showered off and got a bit silly. I can't say as I ever showered in Lake Erie before, even though I grew up near it. Clean and Lake Erie have never been intertwined in my vocabulary before. It was fun and we laughed a lot (maybe it was the wine). It FEELS like we're clean anyways.
