It got cold out last night and when I got up this morning, I turned on the heat (oh no!). Then put together Aunt Joyce's fruit salad and made cinnamon rolls. Jo and Greg joined us for breakfast and we sat and chatted about everything. We're both nubies and they noticed Raksha here (and we told them about the boat incident yesterday). They were at Catskill with Raksha before we got there. So they were mast number 1, then Raksha, then us LOL. Honk, onk, onk... We've become part of the great migration south. They left right before we got there.

We all decided that today was grocery day and after they'd left, Jo called us back to let us know which bus to catch to go to the grocery store (the Free Navy Bus YAY). We ran into them in the grocery store and Greg looked a little worried at the amount he'd have to carry back to the boat. Hope they made it back okay. I know our load was heavy, and the further you walk, the heavier it gets. I was looking forward to eggs and sausage tomorrow, then we got back, I noticed we had no eggs (I know we had some in the cart), so no eggs for breakfast tomorrow L.

We barbequed some chicken, and had broccoli & cheese and Hawaiian rolls with wine for dinner. There's a chill to the air again. Must be that October weather trying to set in. But we are pointed south - in V formation - honk, onk, onk, ooonk...

I noticed that the finger piers and floating platforms are going up at breakneck speed in the harbor. It's all being fenced off and set up for Thursday - opening day of the Sailboat show. Time to start thinking about solar panels, wind generators and davits for the dink.

Honk, honk, ooooonk....
