Wow, that was a fun raftup! We got to the cove at about 5pm. Rory & Greg arrived first on Sapphire. Monte hooked them up with a stern anchor and a bow line to shore. Then Lori & Dave arrived on Camelot. Then Marty & Sue on Caribbean Hug. Then Wally & Robert on Voodoo.
We cooked up some beef fajitas right before the sun set — it was so easy, using the pre-seasoned skirt steak from HEB, and the cast iron skillet was as good as a grill. We’ll definitely have to bring those again.
There was a beautiful full moon – the Buck Moon. I have not mastered the art of photographing a full moon on a non-stationary boat yet, so no good pic to post.
iPod wars raged into the wee hours. I threw in the towel around 2AM. This morning I woke up to the sound of Voodoo dropping off Rory & Greg. They were just returning from a moonlight sail. They apparently left at about 3:30 AM, headed for the dam. They turned around at Sometimes Islands at about 6:30 and made it back to the raft-up by about 8:30. Those guys stayed up all night long. Crazy sailors!
We had a great day. But we are pretty tired from all the fun and schlepping.
This is a shot of a dragonfly that was darting around behind Cupholder this morning. I’m not sure why he hung around, but he stayed for an hour or two.
