Today was a day of doing stuff to ready the boat for the up coming trip. Lorie picked me up mid morning and we went over to the base to do laundry – not terribly exciting stuff but the need for clean clothes, bedding and towels becomes a must. We were doing the laundry at the base as the facilities there are free and we all want to save those few dollars whenever we can. The down side was that only one washing machine was working and the driers were mega slow – but we were definitely not complaining! Both Dale and Gerry had saved a few “little” jobs to do so they kept well out of our way. Gerry replaced an earth leakage breaker, replaced the plug mechanism for the forward head, screwed the hook back into place on the cockpit table, filled the water tanks. Meanwhile Lorie and I had finished the laundry and took ourselves off to the supermarket to do the last minute grocery shopping without the men hurrying us along. I returned to our boat and unloaded the groceries. Gerry and I then walked to the marina office where Dale had arranged to meet us. Then it was back to their boat at the base for an extended cocktail hour with some of the friends that Dale and Lorie had made whilst they had been waiting for us to arrive. We had a very pleasant evening with some good appetizers, drinks and conversation. Finally it was time for Lorie to drive us back to the marina where she checked her email before leaving us to return to her boat.
