Yesterday was very rainy and some squalls. Why is it that Tom won’t wear long pants even when it’s in the high 40’s because…it’s Florida? Also why won’t he put up the enclosure when the wind and rain is pummeling him because…it’s Florida. I thought that is why we spent the big bucks for one? It must be a guy thing! LOL!

Today is a much better day. Sun is out but it’s windy. Finally feels like Florida! Yay!
Cathie on s/v INTERLUDE. OUT.
We had to say good-bye for a short while to Kathy and Fred/MAKAI. We first met them in the Abacos in 2007 and have been great friends since. We had the opportunity to have them as a neighbor for most of the summer and it seemed way to soon to say good-bye. Time really flies.
They are heading south and hope to be in Brunswick, GA by Sunday. We will be heading to Florida by car next week. Hopefully we will catch up soon.
Thanks for the going away dinner Kathy! It was delicious!
Cathie the CLOD. OUT.
We drove down to St. Augustine to do a few repairs on INTERLUDE (11 hours) and to visit with our buds Dennis and Bettye/MISS BETTYE. We stayed a few extra days and Tom got some major work accomplished (I had a stressful time playing with Bettye!) Dennis has been checking on INTERLUDE every couple of weeks. It certainly makes it easier for us knowing there is someone knowledgeable looking in on her. Thanks so much Dennis! It also is wonderful to have a place to stay and visit when we make our trips down for repairs. I think we have passed the “being company” stage in our friendship! Our last day was Bettye’s Birthday and we had a lovely dinner at a local steak house. Yum! Happy Birthday Bettye!

St. Augustine Marine Center – INTERLUDE getting a new water heater, bath and miscellaneous repairs
We decided to break up the way home by stopping in Myrtle Beach for the night. The hotel was nice, the beach was beautiful BUT the loud singing on the beach until 3:30 am was a little much since we had to get up early and drive the last leg home. I think I am showing my age here! ha!
Myrtle Beach, SC – Breakers North Hotel. Stop for R&R and a walk on the beach.
We are home now…moving a little slow today!
Our boat buds Fred and Kathy/MAKAI left York River Yacht Haven, Gloucester Point, VA today (near our house.) They are heading to DC for a few days and then on to get their boat hauled out for repairs. We will catch up with them at the Annapolis Boat Show in October. Hopefully we will be able to hang out with them for a while in the Bahamas when they catch up with us. It’s always great to see them. We first met them in the Abacos in early 2007.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope all is well with you and yours!
