Most of the locks so far have been very windy and hard to hang onto the rope. By the end of this trip I should be a lot stronger than when I started. Keith is getting used to me driving the boat and today I drove most of the day.
We are staying at Island City Harbor Marina. It was too far to walk to town so they gave us a golf cart to use. First time I ever went grocery shopping in a golf cart. We were running low on some staples; i.e., beer, coffee-mate, and starbucks! The people here are real friendly. We rated this marina a 7.5. Our power went out at about 16:00; it was a transformer, and it was back on by 18:000 which was good because it is 85 degrees and humid.
Keith washed the boat this afternoon(we miss you Craig). It was really dirty and needed it badly. I had a chance to get caught up on things. It was nice not to be in a hurry.
CO's comments: At our berth, 75' from the shore, we have 21' of water below the hull. There are 60' yachts in this tight marina. Cost for slip was $30.00 and we would stop here again and recommend it to anyone. It is not real fancy but the people are friendly and helpfull. If you can maneuver a 40' boat in tight spaces you would have no problem. Bobbie can recieve 12 TV stations off of our newly installed antenna from Dan and that makes her happy.
