In fact this story is from yesterday, but i liked the title this way
Woke up early to the tip-tap of raindrops on deck (a lovely sound, by the way):
It was really wet outside:
This was no surprise, as per the weather forecast. In fact, i had been waiting for a day like this (it doesn’t take a long wait here). This was the opportunity to attack some “indoor projects”.
But not without a proper breakfast first:

Then, the most awaited project – giving Pesto it’s shine back. See, she has a beautiful interior lined with teak. But the wood has gotten dry and with a dull appearance over the years. So out came the teak treatment fluid from Pesto’s bilge, and part by part her joinery started to shine again:
There were a few interludes for some admin work, a call with Adriana to set logistics, and a few upgrades to the blog – including the Share buttons and the Comments field, in addition to yesterday’s Post:
Then i got a call from the chandlery, and soon thereafter it started to dry up. This was the signal to start another project – but this will be subject of another post:

Unfortunately, the neighborhood (the geese) were replaced by a something of a less lively kind. There will be no quacks tonight:
Such a great day deserved a great closing, to which a steaming clam chowder accompanied by chilled Cabernet Sauvignon were just the perfect choice:
(by the way, have you noticed the shine of this table?)
And with this, another set of important items ticked off the to-do list in prep for our voyage.
