Moving toward Christmas

29 November 2009
Ray here...
Still floating...we got to spend Thanksgiving with Daughter Willow, Granddaughter Jillian and S-I-L James...and an awesome feast it was! Even the dogs made out!
Everything timed out well...Thanksgiving dinner, getting to see other daughter Shannon and other S-I-L David who was home on leave from Kuait! Got some Christmas shopping done, Sandy stayed on to watch Jillian and I was taken to the airport for a trip to San Diego and Cruise to Mexico.

Our goal is to take this break (which included a sanity break from each other) and to come back and get things rolling with the boat. Our schedule for the rest of winter is intense with changing out the fuel tank (finally), hooking up the watermaker, wind generator, and monitor windvane (self-steering device)....oh and get a lot of sailing (especially storm sailing) done. So it goes...but things'll have to wait until after the new year, as we get to have Jillian abard for a week or so upon my return from Mexico...busy busy busy!

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season from both of us!

Retired July '09. This is our second sailboat together. Before, Sandy had a Morgan '38 which she sailed from Port Angeles around Puget Sound. Sandy has motored to Mexico in the 70's...and lived and worked on her own boat for 3 years in Alaska. [...]
Extra: We are happy to report we are actually doing exactly what we really really really really really want to do...(short of winning the lottery of couse :)...in any case...it's PURE JOY! HF Contact: KF7IDH
