Last weekend for a while

What an exciting start to the weekend! Frank cut the old anchor off and put the new one on, I fell in the water trying to tie up the old dinghy, and we had a nice cruise down to Solomon's Island! When we got here we took the new dinghy out and got up on plane with all 4 of us--it was awesome! Dinner, movie night with "Thor", and now we are having sleepovers with the kids. Tomorrow we honor our veterans and head to the local maritime museum!

Merry Christmas! (Sort of)

In the midst of running a million errands the kids and I picked up the Captain's Christmas present--a Manson Supreme anchor--and they couldn't wait to give it to him! We might get it on the boat before leaving tomorrow.

Tonight we headed to Honey's Harvest for their yummy pizza night (perhaps a winter tradition?) where we ran into dock neighbors and Navy shipmates. It was a great dinner, and to top it off they had pumpkin cheesecake pops--enough said!

Semi-winterized

We spent the weekend tied to the pier with a few important chores--test out the new dinghy, dinner with friends, take down Halloween decor, "winterize" the closets, and purge the storage unit. We did it all before seeing the Captain off to Phoenix, and then the rest of the crew headed to the movies. Good times!
