Summer Summary

A little birdie my SIL rapped on my computer screen and reminded me that it was time to post, so here goes.

With autumn almost around the corner, it seemed a fitting time to wrap up my summer. Maybe some of you will remember this familiar little task that we used to have to do in school. "What did you do over the summer, little Johnny?". I used to hate when that question was asked, and always struggled because there wasn't much that happened.

So "What did you do over the summer, little masgblog?".

Masgblog struggles yet again. What the heck DID we do?

Well, I can tell you that we spent a lot of time watching the weather. Because we spend so much time on the boat, we were constantly acquiring weather updates, be they from the VHF, the Internet, and the good old radio. Sometimes the reports were accurate, but most times they were not. If we had stayed at the dock every time they mentioned r-a-i-n, we would not have gone anywhere, but being the daredevils that we are, with a thirst for living dangerously, we would venture out and were able to handle whatever Mother Nature dealt.

What else did we do? Diddly squat else. We worked...a lot. We went to the gym...a lot.

Oh! We met some new friends this year. The friendship sort of started at the end of last year's boating season, but it really took off this year. Very nice indeed.

So sometimes, when you have to tell that little school tale, it's not always about WHAT you did that matters.

And we still have September, with (it is to be hoped) more nice weather to come.

Let us now pause for a moment and be thankful that we don't have to go back to school.
