Last night some friends came by on their boat and docked next to us. It was the first time we have been able to entertain people on a boat. There was no room on 22 foot Compass Rose. Now it's possible to have people come over and actually sit down. We thoroughly enjoyed the social time and stayed up late talking.
Finally, it was time to spend our first night on the boat. What a peaceful night's sleep it was. We snuggled under the soft fleece covers and drifted off to sleep.
This morning we are having our first breakfast on the boat. It is a beautiful day to learn more about the systems on board, relax some, do some home work for piloting class, and maybe entertain some people tonight.
I am adjusting to leaving my little boat and moving to this bigger girl. She is a pleasure to be on. I know that eventually I will learn about her, get the feel of handling her and come to love her as I did little Compass Rose. I will get accustomed to charting a course on Sojourner.
I hope that this Saturday finds you well. I will catch up on blogs as soon as possible. Enjoy the day.
