Fragments

We had a great time cleaning up the island. We worked the power washer for three days and deep cleaned places that have sat all winter long. The island sparkles now and although we were tired, it was a good tired.

This coming weekend we have a cruise to Delta Marina Yacht Harbor with our IOBG group. We are having a picnic on Saturday consisting of prime rib sandwiches and potato salad. Of course I'm working the event as that is what the secretary does. It's fun to put these together and watch everyone have fun. That's what volunteers are for.

One of my readers wanted to see what our boat looks like. Okay, for those of you that haven't seen it before here it is:


It's a 2000 Sea Ray Sundancer named Anewatee (no it's not a native American name). A-new-a-tee. Get it? It's a 340 (which means it's a 34 foot boat). When you include the swim platform and the anchor it goes to 37 feet overall. It has a head with a shower, galley, stateroom, and dining area below. It's all the boat we need. On the California delta if you get too big a boat you end up not being able to go to many places and docking is part of that. Hubby and I have lived on this boat for 10+ days and loved every minute. You keep things picked up and tidy so the small space isn't an issue. This is our favorite past time. We love everything about boating. Cocktails for six, dinner for four and sleeps two. Okay, Little Bit can sleep too. Here's some stills of our boat. Click on any photograph to biggify.


We had rain a few days last week, but it's back to being beautiful again and the screens are on the boat so it must mean that summer is just around the corner. It gets mighty hot in central California in the summertime, but the humidity is low so it's not all that bad. Bring it on because that means we'll be on our boat enjoying cruises to here and there.

Here's what I look like just so you know. I was doing introductions at Pittsburg Yacht Club.

Enjoy your week everyone.

  4. I love that you speak about boating with the same devotion and happiness that I used to have about camping each weekend. Same deal, small space. Make it work and love every minute of it. No phones, no computers, no tv. Just the outdoors and the family/people you choose to spend your time with. Oh, how I miss those days!!!

  11. it's a lovely boat! sarge and i had one when we lived on the chesapeake bay and had so much fun. when we moved to florida we sold it as the intracoastal was just too crowded and the ocean too rough for me to enjoy.

    hugs, bee

  12. It's a beauty and you are too. I'd love to do boat time for 10 days, but I think it'll be a few years before that's even a consideration.
