Beginning this Blog is one more task crossed off the "to do" list as we attempt to organize our lives and our boat for a July 5th departure. We have about six weeks and at this point the list is still long enough to scare us.

The front rolled through just before daylight with a couple of nice squalls rinsing the salt from our decks. An hour later the wind picked op to about 25 knots as advertised. We stayed aboard most of the day rocking and rolling and reading. In the afternoon we listened to Purdue beat Michigan. The announcers were upset by the recent "rough play" in the big ten but didn't give any specifics except a couple of Michigan players.
In the afternoon we dinghied over to "Cygnus" with five other couples for snacks. which as usual became our dinner. We had blue crab dip made from crabs trapped by Mary Lou in the Chesapeake and tuna ceviche from Steve's last catch. Judy from "Lunacy" brought of a plate of wonderful vegetables. Susan made a pizza and cut it into bite sized pieces. Kathy made a new dip that she learned at a seminar last fall.. One cup of mayonnaise, one cup shredded cheddar and one cup of finely chopped onions. It sounds weird but was surprisingly good.
In the evening we listened to another basketball game and then went to bed with the wind still howling in the rigging.
