Back to the Old Grind

Yesterday started with my usual walk around the ship to make sure all is well.

No dead things, but the birds are still bringing their snacks aboard:

The morning was a perfect one for work on deck. Overcast, but no rain, and a nice cool breeze.

Back to sanding and varnishing on the fo’c’sle head:


Taking a break:

Happy corals and yellow tangs.

Weed growing by the port cathead:


First coat of varnish much later in the day:

Shame the rest of the deck is in such poor shape. 😦

One of our volunteers has done a superb job creating order out of chaos in the tool room and area behind the “cage”:

It’s so much better than what it was and I’m very happy!
