Time for the Holidays

Well, we didn’t make it to Paris, but we are ready for the holidays. We have a free-range turkey in the fridge and we just picked up Christmas Stolen at Borough Market. The shopping is done, and the kids are excited about the gifts under the tree.

End of the year achievements include some significant boat work:

SR on hard

We had Endeavor Quay lift our boat, pressure wash the hull, replace the anodes, and give all under the waterline a good looking over. She checked out fine. Next, XW Rigging will rebuild the winches and roller furler, check the standing rigging, and verify all is safe for another season.

In other sailing news, we have a charter reservation down for a week in July on a Tartan 35:

Our plans are to sail north in the British Columbia’s Gulf Islands.

Overall, that’s what I like about quiet holidays– we get the chance to plan future adventures, even if the weather outside is too rough for current adventures. However, we will sail SR to the Isle of Wight this week if things calm down and warm a bit. We would love to have a simple dinner at the Folly Inn.

Meanwhile, I need to return to a superb bread pudding. Happy holidays, all.
