Well, Santa has been good to me this year. Idora is getting new setee cushions
and new inside conning station cushions
and she gets new charts
. First thing this AM I trundled down to the dock
and there she was, her ever smiling self. Bilges dry, not a spec of mildew anywhere. I treated her to a little rock salt
for her teak
decks and crawled around a bit looking at fasteners. Gave her a pat on the stern and came home to sit by the fire.
to all of you, especially to those at sea. One day we will load up and join you.
