Hi friends! Long time, I know. We drove up to BC and we’ve been in the boat yard about 10 days. We had a very nice drive up and have had mostly very good weather (very hot right now) since we got here, with the exception of a wind storm that was pretty powerful. Feels kind of scary when you are living in a boat that is standing on supports in the yard.
Things are going as they seem to go with boat work, which is forward and backward on the progress toward getting back in the water. For example, we recommissioned our domestic water system and while trying to get all of the air bubbles out, the pump failed. We were able to fix it, but the point is that quite a few unexpected tasks arise along with the expected ones. During the winter at home, Ralph works on projects to bring here to install/replace things aboard. He is busy every day working on those tasks. I am less busy than he is and my tasks are arguably less interesting (more domestic in nature), but we enjoy our days. We make plenty of time for relaxation and fun. Springtime here is truly beautiful, and we enjoy the antics of all of the different birds around here from Eagles to Geese.
Based on the way things are going, we think it will be 2-3 weeks unti we are back in the water and off for our summer cruise. Talk to you soon!
