Since it's very hot and humid today, many of us went swimming in the pool. We all decided to meet at the Jib Room tonight for dancing, Desmond's limbo act, and Jason's rake n scraping. Kathy and the girls are really going to get a kick out of this. Close to that time the wind kicked up and Whisper and Rising Sun didn't make it in from their anchorage. I was out on the dock by our boat
has a dock long enough for him. They ought to go to Baker's Bay with all the other mega yachts! While I was watching this docking show, Jim from mv/Mollie invited me onto his 52' Grand Banks.. It's 25 years old but looks brand new. Jim has put lots of money into refurbishing her. Mollie outshines the new 49 foot Sabre, hands down!

Working our way back to Happy Hours II around 9:30, we stopped to talk to Martin and Kathy on sv/August Sun, Gary and Janet on sv/LeeAnn, and then we met Larry and Jane from their 53 foot Shannon, sv/Jane. Larry is so proud of this boat that he had commissioned a few years ago. He invited us aboard for the grand tour. He didn't need to ask me twice, that's for sure! What a beauty. I can't even imagine what she must have cost. It's 17 feet wide, 2 wheels out in the cockpit, 1 wheel in the main salon. It has a dishwasher, washer/dryer, trash compactor, full refrigerator with freezer, microwave/ convection oven, just to mention a few of the items. I think this is the size of a Shannon that Bob Bitchin from Lats n Atts had commissioned. Back to our boat to dream....until the thunder and lightening storm hit with heavy winds and rain...more to be expected tomorrow!
