Once 'Julia Max' was on MV Kruszewski heading for the Pacific NW, we flew home to Portland, Oregon. With great thanks to our house sitter, Norma, we reassumed 'ownership' of our house. One of my first tasks was to communicate with all those we do business with to let them know we were no longer at our mailing service address, and were back at our Portland residence address. Over 75 businesses needed to be notified! We re-opened our MAC membership, allowing us to work-out. We spoke with Schooner Creek Boatworks to arrange time in September for painting and other projects. We filled the bird feeders. Put some tomato starts in the ground. Fixed three sprinkler heads in our lawn. Finally, we have headed up to Friday Harbor, and over to Nanaimo, BC, where our ship will come in to off-load 'Julia Max' on Friday, June 7th. It is a chilling 56 F degrees, over 30 degrees cooler than Golfito. Long sleeve shirts, jackets and long pants are uniform of the day!
