So the big deal today was going into Long Island Breeze to use the Internet. We decided to eat dinner there and I even took a shower for the occasion. When you have to haul your water in 5-gallon jerry cans, 20 gallons at a time from a dock that is a mile from the boat, taking the water for a shower is not done lightly. I can’t wash my hair in this bay either. There is fine silt mixed with the sand and when the wind blows the water gets silty. You can barely see the bottom is 8 feet of water! Not what I want to use to wash my hair.
Anyway, we packed up our garbage (the dumpster is next door to the resort at the government dock), Fuzzy and his food and set out. Bud hung out with Fuzzy while I went up to get on-line…and I couldn’t! For some reason my computer would not accept the password. I think the password had changed while we were away, but when Mike tried to enter it in the computer for me it timed out. I tried several different times, several different ways, but in the end I couldn’t get on. So no pictures and I’m trying to post this via the free Internet we’ve grabbed from the boat. Now I don’t know when I’ll get good Internet again. We did have a nice dinner.
Tomorrow we’re going to take the boat out and check out the rudderpost to see if adjusting the stuffing box got the leak under control. Then we’ll make plans for the next little while. I’ll post things one way or another, and add all the pictures as soon as I can.
