Tuesday Tell-Tales.

  1. So, I’ve been majorly slacking in the blog department for the past few days. But only because we’ve been super BUSY — mostly with boat projects, but also with a little happy houring (yes, “happy hour” is being used here as a verb).
  2. We met up with our new friends — Russell+Lynne from s/v Blue Highway, along with our dock neighbor down the way, Jim — at the City Dock on Friday for a little wine tasting extravaganza. It’s so great hearing other cruisers’ stories and experiences! Thanks for having us over, guys!
  3. We also knocked a ton more off the project list…
  4. Including assembling our awesome new Mantus anchor (blog post later this week!).
  5. And sending Jereme (halfway) up the mast to replace our spreader lights (another blog post in the works!).
  6. Oliver received pelican patrol honors at the city dock this weekend. Oliver is a huge fan of barking like crazy and chasing away the masses of pelicans. I kinda think the dockmaster would be willing to buy Oliver his own patrol vest and badge if we let him stand guard on pelican duty every day.
  7. We (as in Jereme) varnished a few areas of interior teak that we had recently replaced.
  8. We (as in Kim) purchased a bunch of “boat stuff” (mostly galley supplies and some stuff for oliver.) for our impending move aboard. Yay! Oh and then there was my minor Lululemon shopping spree (courtesy of some lingering Christmas gift cards I’d been hoarding). I picked up a fresh pair of leggings, a great jacket, and a new headband.:) All very useful for sailing, I promise.
  9. I almost forgot, our new fridge is now installed and working like a charm. Double yay!  But we still need to test run our new ice cube maker.
  10. And, don’t forget! This Friday is Valentine’s Day (hint hint Jereme). What’s everyone got planned?

>>Thanks for visiting LAHOWIND sailing blog! We’d love for you to get to know us and follow our story as we attempt to navigate a whole new world of sailing.
