A Little R&R on the Corrotoman

This Tuesday will be five weeks that we have been living in THIS boat yard, but of course that is in addition to the five weeks we spent living in the yard in Port Charlotte getting Stella Blue ready for Logan and Gillian and the two weeks we spent in the yard in Waukegan getting Terrapin ready for transport. 

Needless to say, we were more than ready to go sailing on our boat. We were ready to reap the rewards of our hard work...use the chart plotter, auto pilot, 88 lb Rocna, windlass, dinghy, etc...indulge in the daily cruiser life. 

Honestly, it felt so good to get back there...the little whine the outboard makes made us feel right at home and Kala had no problem remembering what beaches were about - she just wanted to know where I hid all the coconuts.

Happy, happy puppy!!! I think the cruising life suits her!

Kala IS a service dog, she's a great "service" guarding Terrapin.

We couldn't have asked for a calmer anchorage to rebuild the Monitor Windvane.

Mellow sail on the Chesapeake. 10kts of wind with Terrapin doing almost 6kts.

Sunny and 70 degrees with the autopilot steering.
Some tacking on Sunday to keep sharp.  4kts upwind
