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

Aug. 24 - Branford, CT

Branford Yacht Club

Work, work, work was the theme of our day. That and watching the parade of boats come in and out of the harbor. It was a beautiful Saturday...one of New England's last summer Saturdays, so people were out soaking it in. We are in a slip at the end of the pier so we had a great place to watch the show...as we worked. Stan cleaned the port side of the hull and transom, tomorrow we will move to the other side of the dock and he'll be able to clean the starboard side. He also waxed the flybridge. I defrosted the freezer and got rid of mildew in our main head. Sally lent me her car so I also had a chance to provision the boat. What a luxury...I was able to get everything in one trip. It wasn't an exciting day, but one we've needed for quite a while. We’re beginning to look a little more presentable. We were looking more like an old fishing boat than a yacht.

We're white again!
