Time to get to work

Sally | Fall in South Florida
We start our season tomorrow Light Reach is scheduled to go into the work yard at Indiantown at 10:00 AM. Scott filled the car with gas this morning and we loaded her up with the first load of stuff that we’ll schlep up there. While in the yard we’ll clean the decks and topsides. We need to sand and paint the bottom, always a fun job. I ordered most of the supplies we’ll need on line. We made a trip to Loew’s for the rest. I’m sure there is a trip or two to Harbor Freight and West Marine that will happen between now and our launch date of November 3. We’ll be traveling back and forth each day until we launch.
We did make one trip up to check on her since we returned from up north. We were pleasantly surprised to see that she wasn’t nearly as dirty as she has been in past years. I did a quick inventory of what was left onboard. We took many more things off this year than previously. I needed to determine what I needed in cleaning supplies.
Our time at the condo has been uneventful. We’ve been going to the pool each morning for a swim after I walk and Scott rides the bike. We’re trying to get some activity in each day It’s so easy to become a couch potato.
We aren’t sure where we may go this season. Our first stop will be in Stuart we both have some appointments we need to get out of the way before we can venture very far afield.
