Turkey |Kemer Turkiz marina| Navigator Restaurant | When I'm 64 Party
March 31, 2009
Hi everyone, Happy Spring no April foolin'. It feels and smells so good with spring in the air. We hiked for 5 hours in the mountains Sunday. It was a trail we did last fall along a creek bed ablaze with fall colors. This time we had spring flowers and some fruit trees blossoming. Great to be out enjoying hikes again. We begged off the hikes when we were on the hard especially when the walks planned were cold and rainy. It was a beautiful day, clear skies and 70"s... perfect hiking. Then we had a 64's party. It was discovered 18 cruisers either turned 64 or were turning 64 this year. Just another excuse for a celebration.
Turkey | Turkiz Marina | Artemis | new sail covers
We finished the sail covers yesterday and Al went up the masts today. He checked the rigging and replaced rigging tape on the spreaders. He also replaced the old antenna wire on the SSB and put on standoffs. At one point I had Al cranked between two masts swinging like a monkey. After all that we could only cross three things off our list of chores to do before sailing.
We have a new tennis teacher. I guess we wore the old one out. Things are coming together. Maybe we'll play a real match one day. Tomorrow we plan to tackle sail repair. We are putting a new UV cover on the genoa and some minor repairs. Our baby Josie turns TWO today while on vacation in Mexico. Gee I don't remember such extravagant birthday parties when our kids were young. But then times do change. Actually they are celebrating "Bumpa's" (Nicci's step Dad Al) retirement. He took the whole family to Mexico for a week. Hope your day is prank free. Love and God bless Sally and Al
