Back aboard our boat. Back in action.
The website and blog have taken a back seat for both Captain and First Mate as we soak up the last few days of sunshine before Winter sets in. The last couple mornings have had a snappy tone to them. Our Assistant Harbormaster was kind enough to find the very first ice patch of the season before any other harbor tenants could.
Things are hopping at Waterways Veterinary Clinic. The veterinary vessel Hallie returned to last Sunday to Petersburg after 8 days of rounds between Thorne Bay and Coffman Cove. Dr. Hill had hoped to stay longer in Coffman Cove but we had to leave after only 27 hours in port. A front was expected the following night which might have held us in for another week and we couldn't spare the time. This week has been spent transferring medical equipment and supplies off Hallie and back to the clinic until her next trip out which will probably be next spring. I wonder where we will be.
This week will be spent volunteering our time to help our good friend, KFSK, with it's yearly fundraising efforts.
Wednesday, October 7th Chuck and I will have our 5th Google Hangout live from Studio 2 at KFSK. Pop in and live chat, we would love to hear how your summer went and introduce you to some of our friends in Petersburg. Mindy Anderson,"What's for Dinner", plans to stop in and share a few of her favorite boat friendy recipes. Tom Abbot will talk story about the history of the KFSK mug and Petersburg's own Harbor Master, Glo Wollen says she might stop by.
We are going to be up front. KFSK is special to us and we have offered to help any way we can. There will be a toll free line for brief chats and we will be giving away two super cool, boater friendly, FSK mugs. We would love to see a few small donations trickle through.
See you there!
