March 17, 2019 St Patrick's Day

Happy St Patrick's Day!!  Not a typical celebration, but we'll make do.

We started with laundry day.  We soaked clothes over night.  Today we rinsed them and hung them on the boat.

Nancy and I took the dingy to the wreck that is off of Little Egg Island, about 2 miles away.  Once we were over the wreck, I steered the dinghy from in the water with my snorkel gear, and Nancy viewed the wreck through the “lookie bucket”.  That really has been handy for those that don’t snorkel.  Nancy loved it.  My underwater camera is acting up, so no pictures.  I may have to spend the big bucks for a decent underwater camera.  But I included a couple from a 2 years ago.

On our way back to the boat, we stopped at another beach.  This one was at the west end of Royal Island.  Of course, Nancy found more shells to take home.  Dave taught me now to pump air into the tube of the dinghy that has a leak.  It was worse on the way back, but we made it.

Dave worked on receiving weather faxes using the Single Side Band radio.  We are expecting a storm this week.  We aren’t near a tower for our wifi to work well, so nice to have another source. 

Back at the boat, we took down the laundry before starting our St Patrick’s Day celebration.  Dave had made us corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots.  He also made Irish Soda bread.  Boy did the boat smell good.  And of course, it all tasted wonderful.  We enjoyed a few beers, but didn’t go overboard.  We are preparing for a storm and will relax afterwards.
