We were unable to leave on August 18th, just a couple of glitches!!!! Our main sail arrived too large. After a few conversations and a faxed copy of our original measurements, the sail maker agreed it was his fault. However, because of the storm that have been beating the Washington and Oregon coast it is just as well that we did not begin our trip.
Second glitch: Our refrigeration went out….but it is better to be here and be able to get parts easily and that is already fixed. :)
We are busy stowing clothes and food. I have already weeded out several items of clothing which will go back to the condo when I take my car over to store it and to close up the condo.
This is an awesome task, preparing to leave the dock. Friends at the marina in Blaine had a going away party for us and it was wonderful. If we don’t make it out this year we have to give the party back!!!! Thanks Mark and friends for the great time.
Blessings, Don and Jacquie
