Settled for Summer

31 May 2020 | Indiattown on the hard
We made three trips up to Indiantown this past week. We had two full days of rain which have brought the water levels in the marina up quite a bit. We could have used that last week. LOL
We managed to get the fridge defrosted, all the provisions off, removed gear that doesn’t take the heat well, covered the teak and dingy and washed the interior with vinegar and water. We’ve plugged the thru hulls with steel wool and covered the ports and hatches. It was beastly hot work the weather has definitely set into its summer pattern. Hot hot hot and humid with thunderstorms most every afternoon. We’ll be going up to check on her every week or so.
The move to the condo has been mostly quiet. It has been a challenge to find spots for everything and the closets are bulging at the seams. The sails are still at the loft, I could let them keep them for the summer. LOL Not sure if they would charge us storage.
We’ve been staying low key since we arrived. I braved Publix for a grocery run and we had a contactless trip to Wal-Mart. The captain has picked up an ear infection from some place that got bad enough for him to call the Doc. You know it really hurts if he considers calling the doc. She did a virtual visit with him and put him on some antibiotics that seem to be working. I’ve been trying to do some kind of activity every day, been our walking a couple of mornings and using the exercise bike. It would be really easy to be a slug in front of the tube. Our plans are still up in the air regarding travel north. We’ll get through June here and assess again the first part of July. Unless something exciting happens the blog will go on hiatus. Plans for next season are in the same flux as our trip north. Stay well and safe all and lets all pray for some sense of normalcy to return sooner rather than later.
The picture is of the travel lift team sliding Light Reach into her slot on the hard. Scary how close it is to the boats on either side. It is a real skill to drive one of these monsters.
