LOVE this place
27 March 2012 | St. Simons Island, GA
We are having so much fun here. Still doing some work on the boat, but making time for fun as well.
We have been able to do many small repairs at lunchtime each day.
We have a new TV antenna, not yet installed, but run up the halyard for a temporary fix, and the TV is working well. We can actually catch the local news station now.
We have made cushion covers for the cabins-- one completed and one still in the works. More silicone on the final leaky hatch ( i say final with great caution, just awaiting the next rainstorm).
We are having some issues with the fridge/freezer, but new parts arrived yesterday and we're hoping to fix those later in the week.
We went for a sail with 7 of our friends on board on Sunday. Winds were about 20 knots for most of the day-- We had a great time. Sailed around Jekyl Island. LOTS of dolphins sighted. Good food, good drinks, great folks. We have some issue to work out with the main overpowering a bit. We only had in one reef-- should have used 2, but overall a good sail.
One of Robert's co-workers is in the area for business and is staying aboard with us for the next few days. We went to dinner at Nacho's last night. Man, they serve a great margarita!!! The food was excellent as always, and I have leftovers for lunch!!
It's a little cooler today and Maggie and I are going to explore a little more. Planning to bike a bit when it warms up a little.
