With the dock full from the Friday night arrivals, I elected to anchor out and go exploring in Pashmina. I was able to see quite alot of wildlife from Great Blue Herons, Egrets, Eagles and Ospreys. I took some nice photos of Shatoosh at anchor, but will have to wait to download them. They show off my clean topsides.
The other thing I have done recently is freezing my bottles of filtered water at home and using them in the refrigerator on Shatoosh. I have been on the boat for 5 days and while the ice is now melted, the water is really cold, keeping the food fresh and now I have 2 gallons of drinking water. Tomorrow I'll get another regular block of ice.
The other day I questioned the Albin Yahoo Group about the lack of blogs to look at. In no time a new blog appeared, by Dave who owns a 1970 Albin 25. He has completely restored his Ticaboo and she looks primo. Ticaboo lives in the Phoenix area and has a new Yanmar to power her along.
