We also noted that the well-known buyboat Winnie Estelle was at the yard having repairs. We had no idea of this boat's illustrious history until we got home and did some googling, but it is quite fascinating. We later got to meet her owner, Captain Robert(o), who told us that he has sold her and will be delivering her to Key West later in the season. Sounds like she will eventually be taken back home to Annapolis, where she was built in 1920, as these folks were hoping. What a great story!
After our walk, I elected to take a shower in the boatyard restroom to save water on s/v Hope. When I got into the stall, I realized there was only one handle and immediately knew what that meant: no hot water. Fortunately, it was a warm afternoon with temperature around 86F and heat index of 93. Not much breeze once you got off the water, either. So, a cold shower, while a bit brisk for my usual taste, was actually tolerable and very refreshing.
The parmesan cheese incident.
Simon suggested a tournament, and since most of the folks hadn't played since high school, we all figured he was a shoe-in to win. Since we had an odd number of people, and since I have deep-seated grade school anxiety involving any game involving a ball, I sat out of the fun, which meant that I could snap a few photos.
Much to his surprise, Barry came in second only to Simon, due to a few lucky breaks (and a few good shots). I think he was as surprised as I was because he was one of the ones who hadn't played in decades.
