Gratitude Year 2 Day 11 January 29, 2014

Back on November 18 of this past year I made a promise to send a hand written letter of gratitude to someone deserving. It could be a friend from childhood, a clerk in a retail store, or even an ex. Although I have had to sacrifice a letter each and every day, I have been consistently writing at least twice a week. 

Being chief, cook and bottle washer as a solo sailing…

Beneteau 43 sterntube leak

  • We need some help with a problem. Beneteau has a hose attached to the stern tube to lubricate the cutlass bearing. Unfortunately ours has broken off and I need to create a more permanent solution but our boat is in the Bahamas and we are back home in Canada. am hoping someone with a 43 could take a picture of the sterntube area and post it so I can determine how much room we have to come up with a solution to our problem. I…

Beautiful Friends Complement Sunset Year 2 Day 6 January 24, 2014

No blogging the past few days due to a pleasant interruption by friends Carol and Paul. Their visit is a real treat as they are the first ones to visit during Year 2 of my nomadic lifestyle. Here in Boot Key adjustment has been easy. The masthead light is working, even though I forgot to put the LED bulbs in. That should be an easy change. Monday the Yanmar will bless Danny Diesel. Chris should be by any day to clean the bottom. Feb. 5 I take the General Ham License Test. That means…

Wow, isn't this interesting

It seems my MacBook Air allows me to put an image in the text section of blog entering but not my IPAD. As that guy on the old 1970s Laugh-In show would say,

O.k. so back to today's blog.

Ay, the Good Life. Year 2 day 4 January 21, 2014

This blog makes me crazy, for the past few days I could make an entry and import images. This one won't let me. How can I combine all my blogs that somehow got scattered?

Year 2, Day 1, January 19, 2014

Trying to keep the blog entries organized as I anticipate the writing of an inspirational book, I number the events as Year 1, 2, and such followed by the Day of what happens during a particular time. Year 1 started in Janaury 2013, the first year of my retirement. Year 2 began January 2014. The Days, such as Day 1, Day 2 refer to particular times. Although I did not blog my Bahamian and cross country trips, along with my life in Everglades City, I do have a written diary of such. Does this…

Blog versus Photos

DSC_0895.JPGIt finally dawned on me how I can put photos onto my written blog section. For the past few months I have posted pictures under the Photos section. But this section, blog post, is where I should be putting my ramblings. 

In the future, starting now, I will try to serrate so as not to bore those wanting to look at those pictures that should be worth a thousand words.…

Turn the Page - Janaury 16, 2014

Day 55 and day 1. The end of the transition period from ending a romantic relationship to the start of a new life as a single woman has begun. Oh, I could dwell on the shoulda, woulda, coulda. I can also try the 30 day 'no contact' approach to winning him back. Perhaps I will concentrate on a safe voyage to the next anchor whole. Either way, tomorrow will be a transition chapter, an interlude perhaps between 2013's love affair and 2014's love of life.

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
