Some go to the beach, some do chores...

Today was chore-day (after coffee, showers and breakfast). Most of my day was spent doing laundry, linen changes, and packing away all the stuff that managed to escape from their proper places during our stay here (along with finding places for all the items we bought this weekend). I ran into Marie and Chris (Spirit) while doing laundry in the marina facilities. They're heading over to the beach for the day with Autumn Born. It seems to be the thing to do today. I ran into Midi later and they were heading over there too.

Wayne stayed on the boat and worked on the heat dissipater for the wind generator and other asundery projects that required tearing the boat apart & when I got back, decided to leave again and take a jaunt around the water in the dinghy. There's a Bayfield 32 here and I went over to say hi to them. Pretty little boat - the 32 looks similar to the 36! So there are 2 Bayfield 40s, one 32, and our 36 moored here (there'd be 2 more 40's but they left earlier in the week). We could have had a Bayfield rendezvous here!

Made a meatloaf for dinner tonight (once again no leftovers for sandwiches tomorrow). Apple pie is on the menu for dessert. I almost feel like I'm leaving home again tomorrow - can't believe we've been here so long and, alas, there's still so much I wanted to see and do here.
