This has been a busy 3 weeks. Between moving out of the condo, getting the boat ready, sailing (well, really motoring) to Newport and David's and my introduction to the life of a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy, we've experienced a mixed bag of emotions and adjustments. In between of course we have been enjoying the beautiful sunsets, the busy Newport Harbor, the help of friends and relatives and the relative quiet and calm (but sometimes noisy and rough) life of living aboard a boat on a mooring in the middle of Newport Harbor.
|These sunsets from Borden Light Marina will be greatly missed. |
We will miss the friends we have made there too.
|How many power boaters does it take to raise the jib?|
Thanks guys - you were a great help.
|Waving Good Bye to our good friend Mike Mason.|
Hopefully we will see you, Someplace Else.
|I know it's JUNE, but the weather could be a LITTLE warmer!!!|
|One fine day|
we take a little tour
across the bay
and what do we see?
A NORTH PACIFIC 43!
|But the sunsets in Newport are unforgettable too.|
|The storm is coming - but in fact, it missed us. I took this|
from the Alofson Pier at Fort Adams. We commute there via
Oldport Launch on "Chemo Days" since we have a car parked there.
|A Christmas Present - and a delicious sampling (yes, only a sampling)|
of White Wines and seafood pairings at 41North.
|We are enjoying the convenience of using Oldport|
Launch this summer. (Thanks Perrin Tysor).
|Cosmo is anxious to get moving, but between appointments|
and the weather not giving us window of more than 2 days we
haven't gone far. SOON!
|Winds of over 40mph will make short work of an old|
and weather worn sailcover. Really, the zippers are
what let go. A new one is already on order.
It's that 10 year bomb again!
|Another Newport Harbor skyline shot. Enjoy.|
