Spring Break Cont'd
08 April 2014 | Poulsbo
Bruce 65* no wind
The boys were up a little before 10, with the offer to go to Sluys and what did I want. I bought they walked. I had a couple of small cinnamon rolls, while they had large chocolate covered donuts, saving the maple bar like, (shape of gingerbread man), for later. They decided to walk to the Wal-Mart, which was 1.8 miles, and I suggested Poulsbo Village, showing them a list of stores from the Kitsap County handout we had on board. It was only 0.5 uphill walk, and they returned with a small football and a couple of racket balls, and then headed to the park. While they were gone, I showered and then cleaned up the galley, after washing the dishes, cups & glasses. The pump that supplies the raw water to the heat pump for the heat/cooling system is not working, so another project added to the list. They headed back to the park by the marina, while I took a walk along Front Street. I checked out the menu at Hare & Hounds, and thought this would be a good choice for dinner, with 5 types of Mac & Cheese for Paxton and various burgers & sandwiches for Vern and me. It was starting to rain so we made our way back to Helios. They were on their iphones and ipads while I watched some shows. We headed up for dinner around 5. The restaurant has an English sports theme with various soccer scarves on the walls. We had dinner and stopped at the same ice cream store on the way back for desert. We watched an episode of Hawaii 50, and the boys headed to their stateroom to Skype with the girls in San Antonio, while I watched Predator and a couple episodes of Numb3rs.
I slept in and didn't get up until 7:30. I made coffee and got on the computer to look at a vacation home that Linda had sent in Costa Rica for next year's Spring Break. The boys started moving a little after 9. They made another trip to Sluy's Bakery and we talked about heading home. There was no wind so we didn't take the sail covers off, and pulled out of the marina around 11. It was a 4 ½ motor back to Breakwater. The boys helped straighten things up after we docked, and we were home by 4:30.
