Dave, Cheryl and I went to Maggie May’s for breakfast. It gave her a dose of “southern charm” right away. But they were out of grits by the time we got there. Then Cheryl and I walked around downtown Brunswick to see the movie set for the Ben Affleck movie “Live by Night”. We stopped at the Farmer’s Market and the Marina office on our way back.
After several weeks of debating and some late night online ordering, we ended up getting a SailRite sewing machine. They are a heavy duty machine that can sew through sails and canvas. It arrived today. Cheryl used to own a fabric store and knows sewing machines. So she had fun helping us set it up. Ricardo was restitching his canvas by hand, so we tried out the machine on his bimini and dodger. Who knew a sewing machine in a marina would be such a “guy magnet”. There were all kinds of guys checking out the machine. Everyone thinks about getting their own SailRite machine. It can work with a hand crank if we don’t have power. They have great support and you tube videos. And they are used to helping people when they are outside of the USA.
Dave had noticed that the stitching was bad in places on our canvas that is only 1.5 years old. So he will restitch all of it before we leave for the Bahamas.

Back at the marina. I cooked our fresh green beans from the market this morning and Cheryl did more sewing. Then Dave sauteed the shrimp for us for a fantastic meal.
