Sorry we have been away from the blog, we have been busy and are know in the home strech!

Check out the new awning on the back. Susan Burns from Canvas Works on Nantucket did a great job. This should help keep the heat down in the salon.

Just another shot from the Sun Deck.

Here is a shot of our new table. We were going to buy one from a marine distributor, but we felt our good friend Micheal DeHeart of Offshore Woodworks would be able to do it better. We were right, the table is great and the Mahogany inlay is a great touch.

With only seven weeks till our departure, we thought it was a good time to break out the Flag.

If I could just keep the seagulls from &^*%ing on my boat!

It has been a full few weeks since we returned from Florida. We returned to Nantucket to the reality that we are leaving the Island for a year and we have a ton of stuff to do before that happens. So here we go, this is what has been happening.
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that Anna and I put a dry erase board up in our kitchen with a list of tasks that needed to be done. Until last week we were very frustrated that although we had started almost everything on the list nothing had really been completed. About two weeks ago all that started to change. We have installed many new items on the boat and above all other things WE RENTED OUR HOUSE. THANK GOD! I must admit there have been many a unpleasant conversation between Anna and I over the fact that this had not happened. We both acknowledged that if we did not have the income from the house there is no way we could pull off this trip. Well we finally did it and its a huge relief.
Having the house rented, you would think that all would be perfect with the world, then the unthinkable. Our little four pawed friend had been acting a bit off for the past few months, and we had been very concerned about him. We brought him to the vet and (Buckle Your Seatbelt) he has diabetes. Ok, so god is truly messing with us. Well it was a tough adjustment, but we are on the path to getting our little buddy well again and have come up with a plan to deal with it on our trip. If things were easy it wouldn't be nearly as fun.
Only Seven weeks left. Tick Tock Tick Tock
