We have so many things to do before we go, so many people to see, and our calendar does not cooperate. And, yes the WX also! Today, however, we call Tina and Steve to have a tour of their new boat, American Pride. Yea! Their calendar is open!
It is Happy Hour on P-Dock in their spacious cockpit. Tina shows us the important things -- like the galley and master stateroom, while Steve points out the helm station and the engine room.
There is plenty of room for Tina's menagerie, doggie Cuervo and the kitties.
As the temperature drops and we feel the chill in the air, we move to the dining table for Tina's delicious shrimp cocktail, which I call dinner! She is awesome in the kitchen, and it reminds me of their visit to Texas a few years ago. Steve used his talents in construction to help Herb enlarge our boat house from a size "R-21" to a "R-27."
The guys carpentered, Tina cooked, and I cleaned. What a deal!
We will soon go our separate ways, but promise to stay in touch over the Winter.
Willie of Willie's Tug,
and of Walldog, Willie and Jake
