Re: Heading south

Well we did not get the weather window we hoped for, so are going to be stuck in Deltaville for a few more days. Not a bad place to be stuck though. We went for a walk this morning and had breakfast in a little cafe, got back to the boats and and a warm up beverage and started putting the Christmas decorations up on Tessie, listening to some seasonal music. Have to have a rummage in the ships stores to make some dinner tonight and watch a movie afterwards. Got the anchor windlass stripped down and have to make a couple of parts for it to get it working again. Lifting that anchor and chain up is a straight eleven on the hernia scale and that only goes to ten. Happy to report that our little generator is not complaining about all the lights we put up for decoration. Topped up the ATF in Tiki's transmission, changed the o rings on the fuel caps of both boats and am rebuilding the a salvaged fuel pump for the outboard on the dink.
There is no such thing as a proper lazy day when living on a boat ( boats).
I think if we ever get boarded by pirates, I will hand them the " things to do list" first. That should make them seek some form of honest employment if nothing else will

All the best

Michael
