Morning sun on Orca III at the dock
First off- I don't remember doing that Dana,are you sure it was me?:) I don't do crazy stuff like that......... I mean just cuz I got a whale signed once ........ hahahaha and anyway it sure makes for cleaning your room a whole lot more fun!!! that's me....lets have FUN!
So jacklines are the ropes running down the deck that we can clip on so we don't have to keep unclipping an clipping back on to do from the cock pit to the bow. It's a safety thing at sea. And works great.
Today we will meet Bob Bitchen from Latitudes and Attitudes Magazine. He is in the process of building a boat and who knows maybe he'll like our dodger/windshield .. Will keep you posted.
Yesterday Steve did some checking for solar panels, looks like Downwind Marine in San Diego has some. and my stove......... Well no parts available - obsolete - and Steve tried to fix it again to no avail so................. we are getting a new one. Have put a bid on one on ebay ($250) hopefully we will get it for that price. cross your fingers (bid ends in 2 days) Still searching out batteries - looks like Costco has the best price but.... my costco card has expired - so I will have to get that updated I think. Does anyone know if there is a Costco in Mexico?
Yesterday was hot so the kids and I went for a swim in the Hotel Resort pool and boy did they have fun!! the pool was 90*F not bad ,eh? (how's that rain/snow/) Cheaky aren't I!! Emma's swimming is getting better and better and the other two , well they are just fish!! I did laundry and have been getting caught up on my scrapbooking and beading. The kids did some fishing and caught ........ an old fishing lure. they were so excited!! They started to fish with the magnets we brought, trying to find treasure... they are pirates you know!!
Well the sun is up and looking great, we are planning to leave tomorrow am to San Diego. Doesn't the burgandy stripe look good on the hull - finally all one colour!!
