|Tracy and Layla are eager to get back in the water|
It is now mid-December and Layla is still languishing in the boat yard ("on the hard"). We have completed a few more boat tasks and tied up an assortment of loose ends before we make the final decision to put Layla in the water and head south. A boat person described life at the end of the year as "Just like a roll of toilet paper. As you get near the end, the faster it goes." Somehow the time has just flown by and we remain here.
|Cleaning up the "dynaplate" (necessary for radio "goodness")|
We have watched more of our friends from the boat yard make it back into the water and head south.
|Stein and Bud making plans|
Our favorite Norwegian, Stein, on Anna Rose, just left some days ago. We know we will catch up with him somewhere in Florida, possibly Fernandina Beach.
