So I had another blog post written, until Windows decided to do an update. Sigh.
We fueled up this morning at the Annual Festival Pancake Breakfast at St. Catherine's and then waddled down to the hardware store to pick up a few supplies.
This last week of sunshine lead to an unsightly amount of growth dancing merrily around our hull so today's chore was to mow the lawn. We warped Lealea into the neighboring slip and were back in ours again in under 20 minutes.
The rest of the morning we lazed around enjoying both the radio and the sounds of a busy harbor on a summer day. We are expecting a few more days of warm dry weather so it looks like we might be varnishing tomorrow.
A play by the Mitkof Mummers finished off our afternoon. Shipwreck on Cannery Island was quite memorable with characters named Sister Willa Sayagain and Nikoleta Lotafishgoya. A short one hour play injected with local humor telling the story of a pair of vikings brothers who lose their ship in a storm after one brother offends a wizard and she curses their ship which is returning home from a raid. Loaded with gold and three nuns the ship is lost and they find themselves stranded on Cannery Island where they are immediately mistaken as seasonal employees looking for work at the Fish Cannery. Very funny.
Yesterday was busy as well with our first Google Hangout which lasted an hour and a half. We still have some learning to do but we very much enjoyed answering the questions through the chat function and were amazed at how many countries were joining us. Poland, Sweden, Holland and New Zealand being just a few. Very Cool!
Thanks again Jonas for your support.
After the Hangout we grabbed lunch at Kito's Kave, listened to some music in the beer garden then walked a block over to catch the start of the parade.
It has been a fun week.
