Good morning everyone. And so it begins… getting ready for next season. We have so much to do and so little time before we once again reach over the rail to welcome you again. Thanks to Jim for sharing his cover pictures last week. We just beat the storm that blew through New England last Friday. I was so happy to be under cover. The crew worked incredible hard to “git ‘er done.” Thursday night we enjoyed our end of the season crew dinner and then enjoyed a long weekend. I spent Friday running around clearing trees with the fire department and looking over a carpentry job coming up in November. Saturday and Sunday spent helping Mom move. Yesterday right back to it in the office and at the boat. No chance of moss growing anywhere near my feet.While the rest of the crew have moved on Katie and Rob are putting the boat to bed. Yesterday was spent sanding mastheads aloft and spars under the cover. We like to get the mastheads painted in the autumn for maximum protection against the elements.
I enjoyed seeing the moon last week against the golden light on the mastheads.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
