When mom's away...

Everyone plays! I'm away at training this week and there is much excitement at home! Today I caught a glimpse of an email that stated our propeller would ship...eh? Propeller? The Captain has been shopping! He also set up for a haul out, bottom paint, and repair of the mast. But it hasn't all been work! Just to spice things up we had a "man in the water" incident! Trent was looking at some horseshoe crabs under the dock and went a little too far! He's fine, but one of his favorite toys, an old iPhone loaded with games, was a loss. Never a dull moment!

Happy Mother's Day

There is no better gift than getting away with your family! We got underway Saturday morning with no real destination in mind. With less than 2 kts of wind in the bay we ended up motoring (and fishing!) to San Domingo Creek, which I like to think of as the back door to St. Michael's. We easily made our way into town for some treats then walked along a path to a park we had never visited. It was great! We even managed to grab a few geo-caches. Back at the boat we had an awesome dinner of blue cheese burgers on the grill. Then the kids got really crazy and decided to go swimming in the very cold water! Truly a wonderful evening.

Today I relaxed while breakfast was made, and we had some great sailing back across the bay! We had a lovely walk around the marina, then let Papa John's cook while we watched "Captain Ron". I am one happy momma. :)
