On my dad’s 63rd birthday, he and my mom were visiting us in Germany while Dave was stationed there with the Air Force. That day we had taken a Rhine River cruise. In German, 63 is drei and sechzig. So he said he was “dry and sexy on the Rhine”. Dave thinks this should be his dry and sexy year.
After breakfast, I packed up laundry to take back to the Welcome center. The last time we did laundry was July 6. But we wear the same clothes for several days. There were 2 washers and 2 dryers. Luckily no one else was using them because I had 4 loads.
Dave spent the day tilling the diesel tank from the jerry cans and the bladder. Now that the bladder is empty, he decided to store it. He mostly wanted to test it out before we do a longer passage offshore. And we’re glad he did, so we could figure out the best way to mount it on the deck.
Dave also mounted our electric fog horn. When we are moving in fog, we are supposed to do one long blast every 2 minutes, which I didn’t do a few days ago. You can go through an air horn pretty quick doing that. So we have an electric one ready to go.
