Ko Barrett/Winter is Coming
Yeah, I was down two days ago to winterize the engine, but I left the MarineAir heater on and felt uneasy. It was probably the safest option to keep my water pipes and head from freezing -no stand alone heater to tip- but I decided with frigid air arriving tomorrow I would feel MUCH better if I came down to stay on Little Wing. I finagled my schedule to allow for telework and here I am, enjoying the quiet night in my still-warm cabin. Only one other boat with lights on in the marina. I'm hoping to limp through this cold snap with my water tanks full, extending my precious cabin season with full functionality for as long as I can.

I arrived and found I needed milk for the morning. Headed to Lou's and found milk AND ginger beer and pistachio ice cream. Life is good. Really good.

About: Only me, a 58 year old, slightly feisty woman, five years into sailing and LOVING my floating adventure. Short-term goal is to explore the Chesapeake. Later: points North
Extra: Always wanted a waterfront cabin and now I've got the best there is: a floating cabin that meanders to one beautiful place after another.
