It was helpful when the store room next to ours became available to rent for a month. Much better to be able to sort out the treasures we'd been keeping and really see what was still useful and what can be donated or given away. Having "Rojo Grande" to store things in transition has been a bonus as well, as expected.
Now the only question is .....where will we put all these boat items once they are back home?
The latest Norther, which becomes a 'Wester' in the San Carlos keyhole harbour, made for some tricky times walking along the dock on Thursday. Quite the gusts! Having turned INTREPID II around with the stern into the wind to defeat the efforts of Evil Birds made for much more pushing around at the dock. Today was not quite as gusty but quite noticeable.
Marina Cats: they are shy but so eager for any food and attention. Fortunately some cruisers and, it appears, a very generous Mexican man try to ensure they have something to eat. Kelly says there is a particular sweet little one which a few of the cruisers would love to bring home She is the friendliest and least shy of the clowder (Carol looked that up). For so many reasons, such as allergies or other cats at home, it hasn't been possible so far.

The haul-out date for INTREPID II has been arranged for next Saturday, April 12th; bright and early! The logistics of finalizing everything on board, managing to leave enough space to sleep, getting up real early to look after all those last minute things, then motor INTREPID II out of B14 and over to the haul out dock are a bit daunting. The Captain will have a very busy week.
