|The Sea Island Yacht Club where we launched the boat. An old building and an old club.|
|A spot-tail bass that was the object of the day. We catch and release.|
|The fishing "hole" where the spot tails like to feed on the dropping tide.|
|An eagle's nest--look for it near the middle of the photo.|
|The clamming creek where on low tide we can rake up quite a few.|
|Raking for clams which was productive!|
|Our clam take for the day. These went into linguine with clam sauce.|
--Contacting people for the caregiver position. This is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Good pay, a comfortable house, all expenses paid--I thought that there would be more people applying. I was naive because it seems that there is much demand for caregivers. And this is likely to be a field that only increases as we all age. We have a couple of people that we are interviewing tomorrow.
--Working on the boat which will likely take 2-3 more weeks before going to haul out at the boat yard. Lots of priming and filling. But she is looking good.
--Going to meetings and meeting with those I sponsor. I find that I can expunge the drama of life by going to a meeting. I feel the weight lifted. I am among others who live with drama every day, and somehow, we manage to feel a bit lighter after being together for an hour. This never ceases to amaze me.
--Walking with the dogs in the morning. We do about a mile together before any of us have breakfast. They love it, and we get some time to enjoy the property and look for animal tracks.
What I haven't been doing is getting around to all the blogs that I like to read. I will catch up at some point. I have literally felt overwhelmed with the caregiver situation. But I can see that creativity in thinking--split shifts and other ways to get coverage 24/7--is helping. All will be okay.
Have a good day. And if you are a veteran, thanks for what you have done.
