We returned to the Goose last Thursday; boy is it cold! Rich’s first job was to clean the fouled prop. The water was about 48 degrees and the captain was not happy to go swimming.
Dressed for the challenge, Rich heads to the water. He really could use some diving gloves. He was happy to report that the hookah worked great.
After only one day of sailing the starter failed to work and Rich had to replace it with our spare. We also discovered that the heater system won’t stay running; it has to be restarted almost every time. Oh well, it’s a boat and something has to be broken or life just wouldn’t be right.
I’ve been interested in my family genealogy for some time. I was told by my cousin that I could join the Daughters of the Revolution because we are descendants of a Patriot of the Revolutionary War. His name was William Hamner. We stopped in Charlottesville so I could research some of my ancestors.
Charlottesville turned out to be delightful. There is a walking mall in the center of the town with numerous shops and eateries. Just before leaving we stopped at The Pie Chest.
We shared a piece of Lemon Chess pie which was absolutely delicious.
