Finally got the Bill of Sale! YEAH!!!!!
Last week was a whirlwind of boat jobs. Eric has been McGiver with wiring chart plotters and auto pilot, helping me tape windows and wood frames for me to paint and varnish, and generally up at 7 and done by 9PM. I’ve also been brushing up on navigation and reading the pilots books for France, Corsica and Spain. The days are long which is very nice until we realize we haven’t eaten and it’s almost 10PM!
Dragged ourselves off the boat for some local flavor and finally went wine tasting. I know, we are nuts to not have gone before but there’s so much to do we forget. We rode our bikes in 25 knots mostly downwind and got rides back.
The other highlight of the weekend was seeing a parade of pirates blasting guns down the harbor. We bought a really cool lamp made with bits from the beach, and a carbon fiber fishing pole at the mini festival. No idea what they were celebrating…
We are waiting for our USCG docs from the US and are told 2 weeks. Hoping we can hop down the coast before heading north. Cadaques is the spot according to locals. If it’s anything like Colliure we will be very happy.
