On the dock in Indiantown

08 November 2018 | Indiantown Marina
Sally hottest fall on record
We were up early and on the road in an attempt to get some work done before the heat again drove us out. That didn’t work out so well as we ran into an accident on I95 so took the turnpike. We made poor exit choice off the turnpike and ended up going around Robin’s barn to finally get to Indiantown well after 9AM.
We had already decided based on how far I’d gotten on the deck yesterday to stay another night at the marina. They had no issue with that. We hadn’t unpacked the car yesterday so that was first on our list. We had turned on the fridge so it was cold. After off loading everything in the car and transferring the contents of the cooler into the fridge I started in on the decks.
Scott had put the bimini back on the day before and started working on the dodger. The decks were looking better but there was still a good amount of scrubbing left to do. It was a slow go and it was HOT. While we were working Gary the gator was swimming lazily amoung the docks. Gary is pretty good size around 6 feet and doesn’t seem the least bit fazed by the commotion around the marina. He likes to sunbath in the high weeds at the end of the dock where we are tied. A little disconcerting when you go to walk off the dock.
We knocked off around 4PM when I finally finished getting the docks cleaned and the cockpit scrubbed. It was still beastly hot so instead of staying the night we opted to drive back to the condo and enjoy a nice shower and sleep in AC comfort. We did note that all of the boats on the dock that were occupied had air of some sort. Some quite inventive with the use of lots of duct tape not fancy but it gets the job done.

The picture is of the Indiantown dock. Light Reach was on the one to the far right in the photo. This was taken before she went in the water.
