September 30, 2013The weather here was fair, and there was no work to be done on the boat so we decided to venture out of Port Townsend to the nearest shopping mecca. Bremerton is about a forty minute drive. The Bucket was in need of a size bigger running shoe, a rain slicker, hat, and gloves. We found that Bremerton was not our town, but rather a town called Silverdale.
We found a Shari’s for lunch, JC Penny for running shoes, and a Sportman’s Warehouse for a hat. Most importantly we found a FISHING POLE! HOORAY!
Although we came home shorthanded of what was on our list (no rain coat or gloves), the fishing pole was a huge bonus.
September 29, 2013We went to the beach today. Scott assured me that it was just like Mexico, only 50 degrees cooler. Well, as it turns out he was wrong. It was 40 degrees cooler and winds up to 30 miles an hour. No rain though, so it was a pleasant trip.
Today is Sunday. My idea of a good Sunday is lying around, eating “bad for you” food, and watching television. With a 3 year old lying around isn’t much of an option. Scott managed to find an antenna at our local hardware store so we have television. We get one channel, clearly, all the time. Blessing or curse? I haven’t decided. The station is called QUBO, it is cartoons and children’s television, all day, everyday. That hasn’t put a damper to my idea of a good Sunday. I can cook.
I made bread on the boat. We ate it. Divine!
Instead of lying around and watching television I began to sew window coverings. Yes, they are small and do not use curtain rods, and are referred to as portholes. Lucky for us I brought along a few yards of blue velvet and several yards of elastic. I have a plan. Photos later (if these covers are photo worthy).
Fair Winds and Oceans of Love,
Cindy, Scott, and the Bucket
