Not all sun drenched glamour

[Maryanne]I know we have not posted for a few days (just a splurge today), but that is because this last week I had mostly been busy with dull chores (yes life cruising on a sail boat is not all glamorous); I had to get a propane tank filled at a store over a mile away (thank goodness for my little hand cart); tend to our dinghy rudder problem; lots and lots of little jobs that just take time.

This next week I hope to do a little bit of sightseeing in Portland, so you can expect a few posts with pictures to show you of this wonderful city, with its active working water front (local and international ferries, lobster men, etc), cobbled streets and great history.

Today I had originally planned to help with some beach/island clean up, but it was canceled at the last minute. I briefly thought about a grocery run, or some sightseeing - but the weather is very rainy, with lightning and thunder to boot - so I'm staying on the cozy, warm boat to do "house" work.

Oh THANK YOU for that video! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now I like Arizona again, which is quite convenient since my house has been built here and we haven't seen rain for..oh gosh, several months at least! But we DO have lizards. The nice term is gecko and artists make what they call geckos because that is kind of a cute term. But they are lizards, no question about it. Fortunately, the yard is also full of hummingbirds who have love dances and wars...better than TV any day. Actually, their behavior reminds me of the Democratic Party these days! ugh. How much longer do you have in Portland?
