WEEKEND -- Rain - Farmers Market - shopping - projects

23 April 2018
Wow... busy weekend...plus Boat WASH type RAIN... actually on Sunday AM.. .it was more like someone standing over AB pouring buckets of water on her!!! Deluge!!!! But the good thing...most of the boat is watertight; and it's salt free now.... Yeah !!!

Saturday, SEEKER, and AB crews walked to the Farmers Market (routing through Riverside Park)... (see PIC re: marauding bands of Seniors, and TREE).

We bought lots of "heavy" fruits, and veggies!!! I mention that because we had to carry them all over for late morning shopping up in the land part of the town!!!
We rode the bus to publix for essentials...bread; entres; milk; etc.

We also rode the bus out to Lowes; and CVS for solar lights; sanding stuff for the bottom job coming up; batteries; strapping for dinghy gas tank, etc. STRANGE though... found the required binocular batteries not at Lowe's but at CVS; and found the strap at West Marine...(and also a free gift card (at WM - celebrating 50 years in business).

in between rain showers, I cleaned the grille (Magma)... and installed the solar lights in the places where they were missing (they get dumped overboard occasionally by sheets, and lines).

WE also collected some water in the potable water tanks during the last of the rain storms... but missed the deluge.... (after the first flush cleaned off the salt, and deck dirt).

Earl just came by to borrow a tool... said they were leaving on WED.

Don't really have a date for AB, (except NOT on Friday).
