In case anyone has missed it, I haven’t been around much. There is a reason for my absence. I’ve been moving. As of last Saturday, we are now living on our 2005 Leopard 40 catamaran sailboat, Silver Penny!
The boat was in dry dock for over a week being repaired, but last Saturday we were finally able to move aboard. We’d unloaded the van the day before, so it was a mess as we decided where to put stuff.
Hubby’s 5 month old kitten, Maddie made herself at home right away. My cat, Raphaella, a 14 year old Chartreux, was not so sanguine. She stayed in her bag the whole day.
The first thing we had to do was go through the locks at Port Canaveral.
After that, we were in a canal on our way to the ICW and south to the marina we’ll be living in for a while.
This is our first fixed bridge. It didn’t look like we’d fit, but we did.
Our arrival at the marina was interesting. One must remember that some days you enjoy the show and some days you are the show. Here is our resident pirate who has seen better days. He guards the foot of our dock.
It took repeating the de-naming and renaming ceremonies, but we finally got the new name on the boat.
This was my view our first morning in the marina.
We’re at the boat show now acquiring necessary items for the boat, such as a new anchor, safety gear, stove, and other things, but I’ll be back to author stuff in a couple of days.
Have you ever moved? How long did it take you to get your new home settled?
Have a great week.
