Skylark's Progress

21 July 2016 | Yarmouth ME

Ed, Luna and I spent two days doing final preparations for Skylark's haul out. For me it meant continuing to offload five years worth of stuff we couldn't seem to live without. We had enough food to last a few months longer (not fresh things though) because we got used to purchasing favorite items as we found then when we were at well-stocked grocery stores. We just never knew when we could get things but looking back, we probably could've done without all that stuff. We haven't bought much since being in the US but we STILL had too much food. However, we ran out of milk which Ed uses daily in cereal and our coffee ran startlingly low as well as bottles of red wine. But cans of diced tomatoes? We could feed an army. All rice got tossed thanks to tiny bugs but they don't like pastas, couscous and quinoa thankfully. I tossed our all-purpose flour and sugar not because they were bad or bug-filled but because both had a boat sort of smell to them. I have come to dislike boat smells.

While I was packing up, Ed was taking down. The radar came to rest on the stern cockpit, the sails and battons were taken down and stored in their bags, the water maker got flushed, and the rigging was prepared for dismantling and if Ed was here by me as I'm posting this, he would add a dozen other projects he worked on. The photo (which isn't loading, there must be something wrong with the blog site at the moment) is of Ed talking to the master rigger Jeff who is great. They are all great at Yankee Marina and feel like family to us.
