Countdown to the HaHa
05 October 2009 | San Diego
With only 22 more days to go until we leave the port of San Diego, we are again busy with preparing the boat. Leftover (and a few new) repair and maintenance projects still linger on the never ending to-do list, enough to keep Andrew preoccupied into the wee hours of the night, or morning. I am beginning to think of what's needed for provisioning and creating an interesting 12 day meal plan for six of us, again. The galley is always open it seems with little hungry faces asking "what's to eat?", merely seconds after I have cleaned up the breakfast or lunch or dinner dishes. Note to self - have lots of easy to grab snacks!
We have a friend joining us for this next leg to acquire more sailing experience. Cyrus flies into SoCal on Oct 24th, just in time to do some last minute running around, and then we are off to Mexico. And Cyrus, no, there are no showers or laundry facilities aboard...or should I say none that are readily recognizable to landlubbers!
We are half way through the first term of school and everyone is on track. We had hoped that the boys would be further along, but they are insistent that "no one does two lessons of math or language arts in one day in REAL school..." big sigh.
