A little bit of everything

You can see the chaos that we create for ourselves when we go on a sailing trip. We buy everything ahead of time because for one thing it's a lot cheaper than buying our supplies in Annapolis.

Here is Hans with our little black and white TV (no cable). We watched the Democratic Convention and I can't think of a better place to watch than right on our little boat.

This little bag of fun and good times arrived just as I was leaving for the Big City. I've already read the instructions and can't wait to get started on them. They are Nicolle Mallalieu's Puff and Teardrop kits.
I took this picture of these Ospreys just as our starboard Engine developed a severe case of diarrhea and gas. Yes, we've lost our starboard engine but Thank God we do have a port engine. A quick call to the Engine Doctor resulted and we have an appointment with him on Monday. I'm sure this sudden engine problem has nothing to do with me!

We are happy to have had a lot of wind today and managed to sail most of the way to the West River where we will anchor tonight.

To those in the good old USA, have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!!

These photos bring back memories for me of wonderful days as a kid sailing with my parents. That photo of the sunset is really cool. Hope you are having a great time!

Despite limping along on just one engine, we're still having fun. And I have seen on some of your posts that your father was an avid sailor. There really is nothing like being on the water and even though something always seems to go wrong, it's still worth it. I've also found that my shins were not designed to 'bend' and I will once again come home with many colorful bruises and stubbed toes!!!
