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

May 7 - Jacksonville, FL

Lamb's Yacht Center

“Sand in may shower means I had a great day”

We've been working hard since we arrived at Lamb's on Monday. Stan removed the bimini, we taped off all the teak, sanded it down a little and washed all the dust away...all in preparation for a maintenance coat of Cetol Gloss. Stan did most of that work although I did help between running back and forth doing laundry. After washing down the decks this morning, there was little we could do while everything dried, so we drove to Jacksonville Beach. It was a prefect day for a beach trip...wonderful temperature, clear blue sky and a nice cool breeze off the water. It felt great to have my toes in the sand and even better walking through the water. We spent time walking the beach and then wandered through a few beach shops and by a lot of restaurants...this place is probably a zoo on the weekends. I wanted to do a little shopping in some nicer shops so we drove up to Neptune and Atlantic Beach. They have a beautiful Town Center full of boutiques and restaurants, just steps away from the beach. We did some shopping, walked on the beach a little more and enjoy some frozen yogurt before heading back to the boat. It was a nice break from the work we've been doing the past two days and the work we still have to do.
