What would Mom and Nanny say?

We have been tucked in this anchorage for a couple of days now and most of my sores have started to heal nicely. I am “itching” to get off the boat but know I should still protect from too much sun and definitely not get wet. So we are lazy most of the morning with doing some research for the boat, weddings, Easter and upcoming birthdays.

So after a bite of lunch Greg asked if I would like to go to shore with him to work on the dinghy. Seems the rub rail has detached off the port aft pontoon so it needs to be secured somehow. We have tried the Marine glue before and had huge success but that was when we were at home and had a couple of days to let the glue “cure” before putting it back in the water. We do not have that luxury here so we will refer to the good old standby that has repaired most things it has faced......duck tape. Yes duck tape can be your friend even on a sailboat.

In order to make the repair he really needs to remove the outboard engine, flip the dinghy, clean the area well and then start the application of the duck tape. So he talked me into helping as it is an important repair or “fix” for this trip as it is the “car” that gets us in to town. So I have been in short little pajamas that have a non elastic waistband so that the blisters would not get irritated. When Greg asked me to go to the beach to help with the repair I was going through my wardrobe choices in my head when he asked what was I thinking. When I told him, he said....”go as you are”. Hmmm.....no one is on the beach and I do have on more than most wear to a beach but in my head they are pajamas. What would my mom say? Better yet....what would my grandmother “Nanny” say? I reflected on that question as I rode in the dinghy to the beach in my PJ’s. My “Nanny” was a proper lady who was embarassed to get caught in her “housecoat” even by her grandchildren. My mother was less worried about those things and I smile as I think of her wonderful attitude. Oh well, no one even came to the beach while we were there (probably because someone said ...there is a lady with PJ’s on up on the beach) and the repair was done and went well having more hands to help.

Back to Ti Amo, I go take a rest while Greg and Jaxon motor up to the research center anchorage to see Paul and Laurie on 2 Outrageous. They discuss making a move in the next day or two for yet another beautiful anchorage and a new town for us....Barraterre Settlement. We will hopefully move by Saturday when the winds abate a little more.
