Spring in Florida

Another month has managed to speed past. March was a quiet month for the most part. We did have a first in over a year when we went out to dinner at a sit down restaurant with my two older sisters, their spouses and one of our nephews and his daughter. It was a delicious rib place and a real treat to see family. We had a couple of really nice beach visits together while Mary and Gil were here. They’ve returned north and sister Abbie and her husband will leave the middle of this month.
The mooing field has been emptying out. It’s at about 50% capacity and of those only a few have an occupant on board. And the marina has not been spared the virus. Our friends on Toucan Share both contracted it. Tom had to visit the emergency room where thankfully they were able to get him treated. Veronica only had mild symptoms. We hadn’t seen them in a couple of weeks and had been wondering where they were. Tom has family living in Sturar who had also contracted it so they all stayed together to recover.
We’ve set the date for our summer haul out. We’ll leave here for Indiantown on May 12 with a scheduled haul on May 13. In the meantime we’ll enjoy our time mucking about on the boat. We haven’t got any big projects planned.
The picture is of the beautiful Grand Banks on the dock. That’s the boat that almost got wiped our when Mambo broke her mooring. Good news is all the moorings have been since inspected. Several have had weak parts replaced. We all sleep much better now.
