Sail to Winter StorageCold - 35 degrees 20-30knots
It was a cold night before we left Green Point Marina to head North to our winter storage location at Delaware City Marina and the cozy cradle that Jubilee has lived in for 22 years. While we played rummy after dinner w/ Geri, Sue & I, the temps got down into the low 30s. I was glad to snuggle up w/ Pixie underneath our down filled comforter.
Enjoying each other.
Sailing with GODClear, Sunny, high 60s
It was with great pleasure that I handed the helm to our minister. Reverands Russell and Lois Lehman joined us for a short roundabout on the Chesapeake to discover they truly missed sailing and the relaxing state it places one in. We found no other boats on this beautiful Autumn day to test our skills, but just being on-the-water was enough of a thrill. Many happy returns will be remembered during the colder winter months.
Changing of the CardsSue
We received our new boat cards today and they are beautiful. Don designed both of them and we have all of our contact info on the back in b&w. The first card was taken at Delaware City Marina. Just two days after Jubilee arrived on November 25, 2008 from Rochester, NY; Don installed the bow pulpit which was removed for transit and had already planned the card design. The sunset came from Nantucket Island (from Bert Willett) and the seagulls from Cape May, NJ.
We are celebrating a perfect physical review of Pixel R. Engler our Cockapoo of nine years. Dr Courtney Manetti called today to say all is fine with the Pixer and she should enjoy lots more quality time with us. We are so pleased to hear this since we thought she was gaining weight. In preparation we gave Pixie a bath and a quick trim so all of her fine male suitors would take notice at the Drs' office. She smells so good!
