Better Late Than Never

29 September 2009
Okay, here's the update. There has been a bit of a gap. We did return to our home port in Vancouver in mid-July, after returning to the hospital in Bella Bella and then checking in at the Alert Bay hospital a couple of times. At every dock or anchorage we went to there was someone who looked at the large bandage on Ron's hand and said, "I'll bet you had a run-in with a windlass. Me too!" We now have a library of stories about windlass injuries and know Ron was very lucky to have come away with such a minor altercation. The rule: Never Underestimate the Power of a Windlass.

From Alert Bay we made it to Vancouver in four days. Not bad for plugging along at 5-6 knots. (L-o-n-g days.) Ron's finger has healed nicely in the interim, Salsa had her surgery and recovered, and we have been messing around here planning the next outing. (Dr. Keith and his wife even stopped by for a visit.)

We did make out on the boat in September for a Howe Sound cruise, where we met up with Robert O at Plumper Cove who said we really must update our blog--the world had to know that Ron wasn't languishing at a dock somewhere between here and Bella Bella.

So, it's all good. The boat is tucked into her moorage spot. We're hoping for a few more nice days to do a little more work on the brightwork, and then that will be it till next year.
