So there she is ~ Heron~ all 20,000 lbs of her - today we'll be unloading the car - organizing food, sails, getting ready for tomorrow's launch.
We are very fortunate for the generosity of our friends Mike and Ann who have generously allowed us to stay in their waterfront home here in Deltaville while we get Heron livable. It's a wonderful modern ranch home with deep water dock - beautiful views and generous living space. It's for rent if anyone wants info on that just let us know. A great get-away for 2 to 6 people. Deltaville is a town of about 1,000 I would say - very small town - with 15 boat yards !
We'll leave our car here for Mike and Ann to use when they come east in November and December. A wonderful trade ~ I think we get the better end of the stick ,though if we keep having to visit the auto repair shop ( yes even had to have the car checked out in Arlington ! and today a new battery in Deltaville ! ) that old van may be worth as much as a house !
Had great visit with our friend Greg last night - he's been aboard Argonauta for a month or so getting ready for his journey south. Fun to talk about our start of this journey last fall together. Always fun to see an old friend. Well the new battery is in the car - time to get back to work.... Margaret
