July 21, 2009

Internet keeps kicking me off. Everytime I start to respond specifically to Jane, Scott, Lola, and Sonia I get a message that says I either opened or closed a new tab and walla kazaam suddenly everything goes away. So, I am ending this quickly and will then attempt a blog post. Lola, I appreciate your offer for assistance. Seems it was water in the fuel line which has been solved by adding, "water zorb" to each tankful. It only needs a capful or two but the problem has definitely, and… Continue

Here comes a pix

Another new experience; I am going to try and upload a pix of the knarly sky today before sunset. It was taken between Myrtle Beach and North Myrtle Beach along the rock sided ditch. The marina is nicely kept and a great shelter. Well, as sheltered as one can usually get, but for those details you'll have to read my book,,,,,,,

Memory Improvement

So I am sitting at the bar of the Anchor's Away Cafe in North Myrtle Beach; alone but content to just daze over my chicken quesadilla. The waitress offers me a Women's Day magazine politely saying, "Here, this will probably be better than listening to a all these men." Truthfully, I hadn't even noticed others were talking. Guess I'm tired from a long cruise. Anyway, according to some source you can improve your memory for things like where you left your keys if you wear your watch on the wrist… Continue

Good judgement

This morning I was mad that I used good judgement and stayed on the ICW; but T-G I did not go outside. This afternoon I am having a pity party because the motor kept shutting off, the wind is howling at 25, I'm tied to a dock and not feeling very secure as the fenders keep popping off; I barely made it to this dock but it's on my lee side, so I'm having to sit with my feet pressing against the boat when the North Carolina power boaters seem to think going full throttle is some kind of fun.… Continue

Sailor's Demise

Well, here I am in Beaufort, North Carolina. About a month ago I was in Wrightsville, North Carolina, doing as I am at this moment--carefully checking the weather forecast. My plan to sail the coast along this route was cancelled due to a northeast wind as I headed toward Norfolk.Now, the night before I want to head toward home, southwest from Beaufort to Wrightsville, all forecasters are telling me the wind will be S/SW.

Pooey, I say,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Even… Continue

And, on this day we rest

Day 38

We are docked at the Elizabeth City Municipal Marina. which is not exactly as described in the Waterway Guide. Perhaps the authors never spent time in Lowell, Massachusetts. For those of you who have had the privilege, suffice to say Elizabeth City is a smaller version. The red brick buildings, though not as tall or numerous as in Lowell, they are reminiscent of the days of sweat factories; a town wanting to revitalize but amidst their near come back a few years ago they had… Continue

People, not places

We all know the cliche, it's not the place it is the people. So, it is that my plans to make Sandy Hook were changed when I learned (a) that my #1 sister, Jane and my #1 Sea Knots friend, Suki would meet me at Chesapeake City, (b) that my boss was able to hire my favorite couseling colleague to start the school year with me, and (c) that my husband really does worry about it. Blessing my decision to turn around after spending two days at the northern most part of the Chesapeake were the 3 days… Continue

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
