Okay, so the last we knew you were in Stuart, Zeke's health is looking rosey, you were waiting for Hurricane Sandy and were not sure what you were going to do when the storm hit. Then we find out Garth is driving around in a fancy Aston Martin. Where is the continuity here? What happened in between? Was the Aston Martin thrown up onto Algonquin during Sandy? Are you headed to the Bahamas? How is it staying in Stuart (which was a place that we were considering spending some time this winter on Coda.) Now, of course, Coda is high and very dry in Rockland ME and we are in Newport, boatless. Herk went up to ME this week to get a boat fix but basically we are boatless.
|Hurricane Sandy - the trees are really blowing!|
|Looking out to the mooring field - pretty choppy!|
We took a drive along the ocean the next day; you could see huge amounts of “stuff” strewn around, mostly tree parts. Glad we were safe and sound at the dock.
For Halloween we went to a pot luck the marina held. So many pirates in one place! It was a fun evening. Hard to believe that it is November – before you know it 2013 will be here!
When we arrived back to the boat there were some people visiting with Dan and Garth. This couple from Minnesota or Wisconsin had been having dinner at the marinas restaurant and noticed the boat Algonquin. They are planning on doing the loop in a few years, have a 53 Hatteras Yachtfish, found our blog while doing some research and have been loyal followers ever since. So that was interesting meeting people who know all about us!
Did I mention the oil change is done! We are ready to get moving!!
PS Santa, if you are reading this I would like a new camera!
Milly, I did have some of this ready to go, thanks for the push!!
