17 Apr 17 Winding down for the season

We've been busy for the last two days getting Tumi ready for hauling out tomorrow morning. The sails are off (thankfully in light airs, late afternoon and early morning) the dinghy has been scrubbed and deflated and is sitting on the foredeck in its storage bag ready to go down in the saloon as we leave.
This year we are better prepared with our jobs, I guess it is simply familiarity and experience that allows us not to run around like headless chickens trying to get everything done at the last minute. Hence the blog. We are sitting by the pool relaxing for a while making the most of the facilities the marina has to offer. It also allows us to get away from the rattling noise from the empty mast as the foil that the sail wraps around hits the casing when the boat rocks on the water. Surprisingly we managed to get some sleep last night too! We're also both looking forward to sleeping in a bed that doesn't move all the time. It's been a rocky season, roll on terra firma for the summer!

Here's an iguana that needed to cool off in the heat of the day.
