Thing, things, things to do

We crossed our wake Sunday September 21st at about 2:30 in the rain. During the whole trip we never traveled in rain and never turned the wipers on once or had to travel from the pilot house until the last day. How fitting. We have been working on catching up on all the maintenance on September Song for the last week including cleaning her inside and out. We should be done by Wednesday so the decision was made with unanimous support to take off for Blackbeard Island, our favorite anchorage, and spend a few days playing on the 9 mile long beach which we usually have all to ourselves, do some exploring of the creeks in Half Note, and just enjoying the beautiful weather. The weather is going to be clear with temps in the mid 60's at night and low 80's during the day. I will take lots of pictures of our secret Paradise on the Georgia Coast.
All work and no play, well, we have been working hard!

Notice the trip log 3635 nautical miles (4180 statute miles). The little black boat is September Song at her home port on the North Newport river.

The engine room where I spent two days changing fuel filters, cleaning strainers, changing zincs, etc, etc. By the way the John Deere engines names are Mildred and Ethel.
