Dreaming towards Memorial Day


Good Morning Everyone. A new week begins here full of promise. Sunrise begins this week at 0612 and sunset is at 1735, almost 11 ½ hours of daylight. Though the sun’s warm rays shine down upon us winter is still here with wind chills forecasted to dip well below zero. Our efforts this week will be focused in the barn on the yawl boat. I have one plank to remove and replace. I want to check the shaft alignment and clean the fuel tank. And the varnish and paintwork will get a good rub and recoating. Crew will begin to arrive later this week. March is a awesome month for us. As the sap rises so does our energy for getting ready to go sailing. It is hard to believe our Memorial Day Weekend cruise is only a few short months away. So much to do and so little time to do it. But I am dreaming of visiting the islands, smelling the sweet spruce, tasting lobster on the very first day we sail, and feeling Mary Day heel to a full press of sail and carry us away.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
