Rik - Hot, sunny, thunder storms, pouring rain and loving it!
July 20, 21 22
Been out in the "islands", hence no email. 20th we left Rockland after repairing the heads. Good to have heads that function. We spent a beautiful evening on Seal Bay way out the other side of the Fox Island Thoroughfare. And seals - yuppers, lots and lots of seals. Check out the two photos - seals and the Captain working hard.
The next day we went "gunk holeing" we just went around Vinyl Haven Island clockwise - visited some harbours, tried to get into the Basin and ended up at Pulpit Harbour on North Haven Island. A week ago we watched a spectacular fireworks show in Belfast. Last night we were in the middle of a horrendous fireworks show that lasted more than an hour, dropped a ton of rain and lit up the sky all around us. And when you think about it, sitting on a 34 foot boat with a 45 foot lightening rod, is probably not the place to be in an hour long thunder storm! The Captain did not like it at all, and our "non-lap cat" suddenly became a lap cat.
Today was a good day, off to Belfast for laundry and ice. And here we sit again, in Rollies, enjoying a Newcastle Summer Ale and splitting a Rollie's Special Burger! Delish! Oh ya, with curly fries too.
Tomorrow - depends upon which way the wind blows.
Fair winds all
Rik, Linda and Captain Hook
