We got back to the dock about an hour ago. It was a really good trip. Thank you for all the kind birthday wishes. I really appreciated your comments.
Although it rained most of the day yesterday, we used the time to read, watch a movie, and play some Scrabble. Our movie "entertainment center" is pictured above. It's basically a minimalist look with the iPad strung on some line. Then we stream Netflix to it over a wireless network. If we want to watch a DVD, we use the Mac Book. A nice touch--movies in the V berth.
Today, the weather cleared enough to have a beach fire. The Citadel cadets who were out here for the Civil War re-enactment left fire wood and a number of pieces of plywood on the beach. So we built an A frame hut, had a fire and stayed out of the wind.
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Now we are back at the marina. Time to clean up the boat and get back to being home for a few days. I have several meetings with sponsees this week and at least two regular Al-Anon meetings. When I come back from a trip like this, I feel so good. It is like I have lived in another world for a few days. And like I have gone to a hundred meetings. Right now, things could not be better.
