Life's a little different here....

Where are we?
|Near-naked without her sails, Journey|
at dusk; JAX Mulberry Cove Marina.
Before long, we'll be sailing Journey to Green Cove Springs. Wayne's first day of work was today. My employment is not far behind.
We've stripped off Journey's sails for storage; she looks half-naked. We've left up the dodger and bimini for now, as we're still living aboard and today's heat index hit 103 degrees Fahrenheit -- Wayne missed out on that while he worked in an air conditioned building. We have air conditioning here but are missing a few pieces of wood to prop it into place. We've sanded the boat's exterior teak and revarnished (well, technically, cetoled) part of it, soon to finish the remainder. Wayne rinsed the saltwater from our outboard and drained the fuel, so's not to repeat last year's fiasco (click here for that RTFM learning experience).
|Today's weather. I sweltered, and I don't swelter often.|
June 9, 2014 Jacksonville, FL United States (N30.12.980 W81.40.234), JAX Naval Base Mulberry Cove Marina. Lots of great retrospectives coming from our 2014 Bahamas cruising with as-yet unpublished images. Next cruising season, we're off to the South Pacific. Meanwhile, time to replenish that cruising kitty!
