We wish we had these two little guys for our Captains this year but their Mom and Dad's need them at home. I guess the hardest thing about being gone for an extended time is leaving the family. We will miss our sons, their wives and of course our two grandsons more than anything.
In the last week I've completed all but 2 of our "must do" projects on the boat. We have begun to stage items that need to go with us in the laundry room. Once I finish replacing the fresh water tank sensor and put the Vee berth back together we'll start hauling everything down and finding places to store it and then probably forget where.
The weather here in Edenton is starting to look like the beginning of Fall. The nights are cooling off to the mid 50's and the humidity has finally started to diminish. We look forward to traveling south without hot steamy days and sweltering nights. Plans haven't changed and sometime around the 1st week in October we hope to be back on the water.
