We have been accumulating "stuff" for our second home, almost since the day we signed the contract. All the boxes took up the floor area of a one car garage.
Now you should always check the tides before going cruising, right? How about checking the tides when you are loading a ton or more of goods on the boat, BOB? I failed miserably, and had to deal with a dock ramp at about a 45 degree angle due to a -9 foot tide. Found out later some of the other folks there were kinda waiting for me to crash the dock cart, as it has happened before. (They don't know me very well yet, hee hee.)
Most important is getting galley squared away. Deb says "Bob, you know we do need room for food too, right?" Actually, the storage in the galley and adjoining spaces swallowed it all up quite nicely with room to spare.
We took a lunch/shopping break. While walking back to the car from the restaurant I got stung by a bee. Since my foot was kind of swelling, at the store I bought some Benadryl and took it, so I was dragging all afternoon.
But I did make time to play with my new tools. Love that built in tool box!
We wanted to make dinner on board and wanted it to be super easy because we would be tired. Nachos seem to fit the bill well. Breaking in the new cookie sheet and oven.
Ah, the good life. Literally, Good Life beer! Life is a bowl on (Rainier) cherries? How apropos. Spiffy new melamine plates.
Dinner with a view of the Seattle skyline.
The day was a good workout, lots of "boat yoga" as they say. Bees really pack a punch in those tiny bodies. As I type this, it is the next morn, and my foot kept me awake half the night.
But enough of that, today we cruise!
