We sailed back to G'Town on Friday. The trip was slow thanks to the non-existent wind, but we got there eventually. I'm not sure what's up with the wind. We aren't forecast to see more than 5 knots for the next 6 days. How lame is that?
Anyhow, when we returned to the harbour, we opted to anchor close to town to help facilitate taking on fresh water. It seems we are almost out and so tomorrow I will begin to refill our 85 gallon tank, 15 gallons at a time.
While we're at it, we need to do some laundry and talk to the refrigerator dude to see if he can refill our freon. I successfully patched the stab wound, but the way the Engel was constructed prohibits an average Joe (me) from refilling the coolant.
I'm not sure why they didn't just install a valve that I could hook a can up to instead of folding, crimping and soldering the end. It probably cost like 5 cents more to do and so they said "no". Ass clowns!
In other news, a girl I used to know in college, who now works for NASA, found our website and has been following along for while. Her husband also works for NASA in some sort of imaging department and he gave her a picture which she forwarded to me which I have entitled "MiloWeasel in Space".
I've had to shrink the image down quite a bit to post up here, but in the original she sent me, MiloWeasel is visible from space, tucked in near the Queen's dock off of Hamburger Beach. I'm not entirely sure, but I think she said this picture is from either the last or the next to the last space shuttle mission which would have been in 2011.
Pretty cool, huh?
Other than that, not a lot is going on around here. Almost all of the bar/restaurant establishments are closed for the slow season and will remain so until October, when the boats and "Tour-ons" return. I guess it'll be a quiet couple of weeks.
Be safe, it's dumb out there ....
