Staying busy

3 1/2 weeks to go. It’s time to get serious about leaving. Time to empty the boat of things we don’t need and add the things that we do need. That involves going through every nook and cranny and sorting things out, stocking up groceries, and going up the mast to repair wind gauge. Plus much more. ¬†Unfortunately for the next 3 weeks, we will spend 2 of them in North Georgia while Keith works his last shifts at Gordon Hospital. That gives us about a week to get things ready. We’ve kinda been working on it so it shouldn’t be too bad.

Last week, we made ourselves Florida residents. We wanted to do this last year, but I was overwhelmed with the paperwork and put it aside. This time we made ourselves do it. It turned out not to be as bad as we thought. And very impressed with how smoothly it went. The DMV was a much better experience then we have ever experienced in all our years in Georgia.

It can’t be all work, so we find time to have a little bit of fun. The fishing here is great. The redfish are abundant, as well as the sea trout. We also like to catch our own bait. Keith will take the little dinghy out and catch shrimp to use as bait. He also puts out a bait trap to catch mud minnows. Sometimes he will catch big fish in the cast net and we use them as bait.

Hopefully this time next month we will be in sunny Florida. Fingers crossed. Life is good.
