In addition to my late-afternoon paddling, prep-work continues in full swing here on Pesto.
Sent the sails to a sail-loft for preventive maintenance:
Had a professional come inspect and add a few improvements to the standing rigging:
Serviced the oil tanks’ filler caps:
Sourced additional equipment and supplies … guess where:
Started work on the long-distance communications solution:
And finished the brightwork at the cabin (without mutiny this time):
Also, this week we had our first visits! Ana is very close friends with Adriana, and her son – Noah – is supper buddy with ours – Paulo. They were on vacations in Portland, OR and came to Seattle for the day with her mom. Pesto was among the key attractions they picked for the visit. We were honored, and reciprocated by having them inaugurate our guestbook:
Finally, on a previous post i mentioned that my neighbors were trying to fend the geese off their dock installing a fake dog on it. The geese start coming just before dusk, congregate on his dock for the night, and fly/swim away early in the morning, leaving behind poop and feathers for my neighbor to clean – hence his desperate attempt with the fake dog.
The artifact worked for a couple of nights, but little by little the geese realized it didn’t have any punch, and reclaimed the dock. And now the fake dog has been downgraded to Stuff inside my neighbors’ storage:
Well, i got the quacks back at sleep time. But my poor neighbor got the geese poop back on his dock in the morning …
