Saturday morning. We are working on our second cup of coffee while Chuck responds to emails. Work on converting our website to WordPress has gone slower than anticipated with both of us having other things to do.
Our new batteries have arrived by barge from Seattle so Chuck will be installing three new Group 31s in Lealea sometime this week. We bought the last batteries in 2007 just before we left Honolulu on our first passage and they've just begun to show subtle signs they need to be replaced. Shocking how much the prices have gone up since our last purchase.
Chuck was finally able to track down a supplier for our v-belts, which arrived last week while I was away on the Hallie. (Thank you Ward for the offer to bring up them with you!)
My trip on the veterinary vessel Hallie last week was a busy one. The weather was fine with mill pond conditions for most of the trip to Thorne Bay, Coffman Cove and back. We had just arrived in Thorne Bay and had clients knocking on the boat within minutes. The constant parade of cats and dogs aboard Hallie kept us on our toes and we got to visit with many two and four-legged friends. I had the opportunity to visit with Jo (Alaskafloatsmyboat.com) who has offered to take me mushroom hunting during our next visit if there is time. Looking forward to it. The Hallie is expected to depart again in 5-6 weeks.
Chuck has been working with KFSK on the launch of their YouTube Channel in an effort to help with fundraising efforts. Chuck's Wednesday 8/5 Street Beat program link available here.
We are losing 4 minutes a day and the sunshine beckons us outside.
