In the home stretch!!

We spent the day getting the inside of Cape St. James ready to sail again. Lots of little things to do to make our home a boat, not a dock queen. We are in the last stages of engine work, hoping all of the parts for the muffler system arrive by Tuesday, then Jim will install them and off we go.

Jim is working on Ham radio as I type getting it ready to send and receive while out sailing.

It's been a long hard summer of waiting, but finally we think we will be off soon.

Fair Winds!!!

4th of July 2010

Weather doesn't stop the town of Sitka from celebrating. Many turned out for the local parade fully dressed from head to toe in rain gear. The fireworks however have been postponed until next Friday- hoping for better viewing weather.
