Getting Old I Guess

After getting up at 4:30 am yesterday to get Early Uncle Randy off in his taxi at 5:15, my plan was to get some things done and be ready to depart Emerald Bay this morning to anchor out off Georgetown and await my lovely bride. I failed to realize the amount of work that needed to be done and just how exhausted I was after the long slog down here.

I did laundry, changed the oil in the generator, gave the outside of the boat a quick washdown, and started cleaning house, changing sheets, etc. I fell in bed at about 8:30 last night and awoke this morning dreading hurrying to buy groceries and setting out to sea again. I think I’m just getting old. So I simply made an executive decision to stay here anther two nights. I’ll have more time to clean up and get provisions, I’ll be better rested, and the Lovely Laura Lee can see this beautiful place and have an easier transition from civilization to living anchored on a boat. 

I rented a car today to drive down to Georgetown and get a few supplies I needed from the hardware store. The town looks about the same although the marina there is more run down than ever. I stopped by the Peace and Plenty Hotel which looks the same as always. I kept the car and got some groceries late this afternoon. I’ll be able to meet Laura Lee’s flight tomorrow night and get her back here for dinner beside the pool. I’m feeling better already.

There won’t be many blog postings for the next few weeks. Perhaps if I find an internet cafe or we are back in Emerald Bay, I’ll post a quick note. Otherwise, we’ll be anchored out enjoying these incredibly beautiful waters.
