Well the deed is done. I had a delightful sail from Port Henry to Orwell with the wind at the port stern quarter. As the day went on the air became clearer and clearer. Spectacular September weather.
Unfortunately it didn't last forever. Around noon I arrived at Orwell. Libby was waiting for me. We secured Tarwathie on a mooring. Packed our things and left. Now we're "home" in our own house, and I wish I were back on the boat.
Naturally I forgot something from the boat. This time it is the recharging cord for the cell phone. I'll have to buy a new one. With high gas prices it would cost too much to drive back to Vermont.
Sigh. I wonder how many other compelling reasons to visit the boat I'll think of in the coming week.
Next week I fly to Fairbanks Alaska to visit my son David and his family. I'll bring our dog Pup on a one way trip to his new home with Dave.
To my readers. Unless I'm specially inspired in Alaska, the next blog article may not come until October 7. So long for now.
