Spent Tuesday regrouping and orienting Pete to the boat and marina. I even got him into a card game on game night.
On Wednesday, we drove to Green Cove Springs. We were able to register our dinghy, as mentioned earlier. We were able to get all of Pete’s packages into the Dodge Caravan that we rented.
The marina had a July 4th lunch on Thursday. They provided hot dogs, hamburgers, and the fixings. The boaters filled in the rest with an awesome potluck. That night, the city fireworks were right across the water from our marina. I love the reflection of fireworks on the water.
We spent time at the storage unit on Friday. Dave and I sorted through things that could be organized or given away. Pete went through the totes we have been storing since 2012 and emptied a few. We unpacked his boxes and decided what could be stored and what needed to be available for him to access as needed. We were all very proud to still have room to spare in the storage unit.
There was a crab fest in the park next to the marina on Saturday. We had to have lunch at the food trucks. We delivered several things to Goodwill. That made room in the van to find a bicycle for Pete, his mode of transportation for now.
On Sunday, we had a play day. After church, we drove to St Simon’s Island. We had a late lunch at Iguana’s, our favorite restaurant. They really know how to cook shrimp. A walk on the pier and the beach always rejuvenates our souls. Pete loved the ocean breeze.
On Saturday and Sunday, Dave reviewed several things on the boat with Pete that needed to be maintained while we are away.
On Monday, we finished packing and tied up loose ends.
