Doing Nothing

15 January 2012 | Elizabeth Harbour, Georgetown
We aren’t moving the boat until after Rick and Tracy leave on Tuesday. There was no weather report at 6:30 this morning on the SSB radio. It’s too wavy to take the dinghy to Georgetown, and besides, everything is closed on Sunday, so we had a day with no agenda.

We had thought about hiking on Stocking Island, but after taking Fuzzy ashore for his morning beach run Bud said he didn’t think he could get all of us to shore in the dinghy without getting wet. We were still trying to dry out the clothes from yesterday, so we all decided it was a good day to just hang out. We did some reading; we did some sleeping. It was cool here (under 80) so Bud baked brownies.

I tried to get Fuzzy to take his Prozac in a piece of cheese and he wouldn’t take it. Then I tried a bit of turkey wrapped around the cheese and he wouldn’t eat that either. It’s been blowing hard all day and the boat has been moving around on the anchor chain and Bud thought Fuzzy might be getting seasick, because he usually readily eats his pill in cheese and he always eats turkey. So now I had to give him half a Dramamine. I shoved that down his throat and then the cheese wrapped Prozac. Poor little thing. He still wouldn’t eat his supper, but after sunset (and the ritual horn blowing) Bud and I took him back to the beach. The wind was down a bit at the time and it was not bad getting in. Fuzzy likes the cooler weather and was almost playing on the beach, but every once in a while he seemed to stagger. I’m not sure if it was because of his age or the drugs.

Bud also took advantage of the cooler weather to cook a small roast, so we had roast beef, mashed potatoes and broccoli for supper. After Fuzzy was unsuccessful at mooching anything but a few pieces of broccoli from us he did eat some of his own supper.

After supper the four of us played cards again. This time we had to play three games for anyone to take two out of three, but unfortunately for Rick and I, it was Bud and Tracy who won. We had a great time. I took the photo of the three of them on the aft deck at about 9:30 tonight, just to prove that Bud could actually stay up that late. They were out looking at all the anchor lights stretching away to the south towards the anchorage off Volleyball Beach, the most popular spot here. It looks like a small city with all the lights shining.

Now we’re getting ready for the night and unfortunately the wind seems to have picked back up again. I don’t think it’s as strong as last night though, and we were secure last night, so I think we’re fine for tonight. Oh, and I got the internet to work, so I’ve posted the photo for yesterday.
