eight days a week

Today, I’m walking around with the Beatles song, “Eight Days a Week”, on my mind.  Sure, it feels like we’ve been working 8 days a week lately, but this morning Wil informed me that he only has 8 more days of work.  Four days this week, and four days next week.  Wow!  That number really … Continue reading »

load three of four

  We are another week closer! Today, we are hauling as many of our remaining items as possible.  Next week we need to carry a large table and 4 chairs, so there won’t be as much room in the truck bed.  I even cancelled school today, so the kids could help organize the load.  However, … Continue reading »

sail up

Our mainsail is finally back where it belongs.  Last summer we removed the big sail and took it to Inner Banks Sails and Canvas in Oriental.  They repaired some small tears, as well as reinforced any weakened areas.  They also spruced up our sail cover and spinnaker.   We actually got our sail back about a … Continue reading »

no water . . . again

We were without water again!    While we were hosting dinner for another boat family, a water fitting in the engine room sprung a leak.  We were dishing out dinner when we realized  the water pump was running continually.  We knew our water tanks were close to empty, so we turned off the water pump.  … Continue reading »
