One Particular Harbor

DK on the BoatCan you see me doing the happy dance? Well, I am. We are headed to the boat this weekend for some long overdue R&R. I have been going through ocean breeze and sand between the toes withdrawal. We may even get to do some outside sprucing up of the boat, which we haven’t been able to do in the last few months because it has been so bloody hot here in the southern United States. We are leaving Blazer at the doggie condo (vet) so he can visit with his kennel friends. Since Aubie passed away Blazer has been seriously lacking in dog company.

Tonight will be a long night as I have to upload the next hint for the Secret of the Stole KAL for tomorrow and we will be on the road tomorrow. Can you say “is it midnight yet?”? Oh well, I am so excited about putting the next hint up that I probably wouldn’t sleep anyway. Besides, Florida State plays Wake Forest in football and the first game of the NLCS is on as well. I will get in some serious knitting time tonight.

In my other “job” I came across a really neat quotation book and, in the spirit of college football season, I will leave you all with this one for the week:

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack in will.

  1. Nice boat 🙂
    I saw your comment on my dragon wave wrist warmers. Nice that you like them – and the pattern is my own. I am thinking on making the pattern available online but it might be a while – job is sending me travelling a lot the coming weeks.

  2. Congrats on the Morgan 33.
    We’ve been sailing the same boat (Hinterhoeller Shark-1968) on the Great Lakes from the same harbour since 1968. I recognised the Morgan immediately. She was quite popular up here in the 70’s. Great cruising vessel!
    My husband is also a ham operator. Does your husband have a rig aboard?
    Needless to say, many knitting projects have plied the Great Lakes in 40 years.
    Fair winds.

  3. Allyson,

    We love the Morgan 33. It is so spacious compared to the Chrysler 26 we had before. The Chrysler could turn on a dime, but I’ll take the space any day. Mr. K does not have a rig aboard, yet. He is almost ready to take his General exam and then we will be looking at radios. We are a little more focused on a GPS unit at the moment.

    I am amazed that you have had the Shark for that long! Wow! I can’t imagine how many knitted items she has seen you through.

    Thanks for the comment, DK
