The cat continues to do well, still sleeps 95% of the day. She does make us laugh though. When one of us leaves the first mate's seat within seconds she is in it, curled up and ready for her siesta. Yesterday, she tried to get in behind me just as I lifted my bottom off the seat. Talk about you snooze, you loose.
Not much is happening except yesterday afternoon we had a thrill, no, not that kind of thrill!!!! Gary was driving the boat and I was reading downstairs when he called to me to tell me to bring my camera and come upstairs quietly. Because I am an obedient wife, always doing what my husband tells me!!! I came up with camera in hand. Lo and behold on the back of the boat sitting on the dinghy enjoying the ride was a pelican. He stayed there for at least 15 mins, did not mind me taking his photo and seemed quite at ease.
I also took a photo of a house that caught my attention. If I was a manly man and wanted to bring my friends home to have a drink and play poker, I am not sure I would like to bring them to this house!!!
Even the pier was painted purple.
We had a nice sunrise this morning. After getting bitten so badly the other day by "no-see ums" I lathered myself in bug cream, wore a jacket and Gary's sweatpants so the little b-----s could not bite me.
Today, we saw two types of osprey - the feathered kind and the mechanical kind. The bird again would not leave her nest to reveal her chicks. She really glowered at me with her beautiful yellow eyes. What good, protective mothers they are.
Gary and I have been amazed at how adjusted we have become to the warmer weather. We have had temps in the low 70s and we have been cool. It has also been very interesting to see the arrival of spring as we venture north. The further north we get, the less we see of the azaleas flowering, trees budding. I am curious to see if my daffodils have finished blooming at home.
It is getting dark and it is time to find an anchorage for the night. We are hoping to go into Back Creek Back Creek.
