Last fall I got all broody and found myself wandering into pet stores looking at kittens. I assured Ted that I was just getting a temporary fix of baby kitties out of my system, not to worry! It was definitely going to pass! Right! So here is Kayto. He is shy but relaxed. and named after Kato on the Pink Panther as he likes to spring out and attack things …particularly Tilly (she got such a surprise jumping aboard one day, that her sure-footed foot faltered and she did a wild-eyed plunge between dock and boat – dignity was restored eventually, but i’m afraid a little love was lost between our fur children). Kayto has been aboard since he was 4 months old, and has so far proven himself a sailor. So off we go with Kayto!
So glad our sweet girl found such a loving happy home! Thank you Elaine and Joanne! Tiilicum loves to be with us on the boat….at the dock. Underway, she shakes and shoots us with these ‘suffering-looks’; she is not a happy sailor. So we decided to leave Tilly behind. We will miss her as she lives the the high life with Aunty Elaine and Aunty Joanne in the Comox Valley!
Finally we got down to the last couple of weeks before casting off our lines! Amidst final-final projects we enjoyed lots of wonderful gatherings, dinners, mini boat trips, cockpit parties, and yes even Cuban cigars! So many friends wishing us well, helping us out, or…just getting us off the dock! Thank you! Love and hugs to all! Look forward to the ditch bag party when we get back!
We have done it – left the dock that is. All the projects are not done, we have less $$ than we wished for but carp eh diem!! We were done sitting at the dock doing the “LIST”, I packed up my office, took our car to its storage spot, Tilly’s off to her great new home for a year and we cast off the lines. There will be blog catchup over the next few weeks on projects. We didn’t get far the first day but Henry Bay was far enough. We need a day to decompress Barb and Bob were out on their boat and had cocktails with us that evening. That was repeated the next evening as Mal and Sandra Walsh and Jim Edgar joined the Tease’s for a pot luck aboard Adesso. A good time was had by all and now our new adventure begins!!!!
