Our new "home"

Here we are, safely tucked away in our new home for the next 5 months. Ahhhhh...we're allowing ourselves a few days of rest, then we'll hit the list of repairs and upgrades we need/want to do before heading out next cruising season.
We didn't have any rain on our entire 7 month cruise! A few drops fell the other week - just enough for a fellow cruiser to declare on the VHF radio to the fleet that there was fresh water falling from the sky - but that was just a teaser as it didn't even cover the deck of the boat. Just enough to leave ugly gray spotches and show how dirty everything was. Actually, we haven't experienced rain since leaving Sacramento at the end of May - over a year now as summer is California's dry season! We hear that we'll be getting plenty though over the next 5 months. That's when we'll discover where the boat leaks from topside!
I finished the second pair of Big Black Socks for a soldier, and am about half way done with a simple feather & fan lace big baby doll blanket for one of my guild's community service projects. It's so nice to have some mindless knitting to pull out when I feel like playing slug and vegetating. Plus, this stuff will all leave the boat when I go back to the states for Meg Swansen's Knitting Camp and to visit my sons. That means more space on the boat for new yarn!!!

We're off to check in with the Port Captain this morning, and take a bus into the city to pick up mail (Yippeee!) and to do some provisioning. After I TAKE A SHOWER up at the Yacht Club. Yes, a REAL shower where the water stays on ALL THE TIME! I hope I remember how to do it, you know, like don't breath in the water flow and drown. Stuff like that.

Just remember to come up for air!
