"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 24 - Back in the Water

We finally got The Pearl back in the water. Eric came down to help Stan make the last adjustments to the engine and then we took her out for a test run. Everything seemed to work great. It was a beautiful day to be on the water.

After the test run we moved the boat over to Rockport Harbor. What a great place for our first night. The weather was just right…blue skies, perfect temperature and a light breeze. We had a nice lunch with Eric, then walked through an art show that was just across the street from the dock. I ran home to get the things we needed to spend the night and Stan finished up a few things on the boat.

Judy and Stanley Marek drove me back to Rockport; it was fun to have them as our first guests on the boat. We sat on the fly bridge and enjoyed our first happy hour. After Judy and Stanley left we watched the sunset and visited with our boating neighbors. We joined them at Panjo’s for pizza and great conversation. What a wonderful first day on the boat.
