White over red, pilot ahead
We spent several days at a great marina where a stranger let me take his van, with his wallet and breakfast on the dashboard, to go food shopping. We’ve had offers in the past to borrow vehicles but it was raining and this was the first time I took someone up on it.
We had time to meet family and friends. We visited my cousin Gary’s off the grid “camp” complete with dishwasher and walked the trails on his property. Then we met up with Tim’s college roomate’s son who is a luthier in Portland. We got to tour his shop and see some of his beautiful craftsmanship.
Different ways to travel
Yesterday I learned that my foulies float. We had left our mooring without much preparation and they had been drying on the bow since I got soaked on Saturday in Portland. When I went to the bow to get something, they had mysteriously disappeared. We turned around and performed a foulie overboard drill with a coast guard crew watching. All souls accounted for.
Cruise Ship Listing to port
This Cunard ship came in the day we left and Tim noticed that it was leaning a little to the left and this was without passengers.
Clean that waterline!!
