We Are Lost Without LOST

Well because of our work in progress engine, this weekend wasn't too exciting. I spent a lot of time in the hole cleaning and working on the engine. The two side zincs have been changed, a boy did they need it! I also installed the new hoses and they look quite spiffy.

Christine has been working on our wood boards that we will strap our jerry jugs to. We plan to have 4 or 5 Five gallon jugs on fuel on one side of the deck and 4 or 5 Five gallon jugs of water on the other side. Christine is also balancing boat work with the online classes she signed up for so she is staying quite busy while I'm banging away at the engine.

Saturday was only a half work day as we had a family picnic to attend. Good food, good family, good times.

Sunday after a lil boat work we had a yearning to be out on the water. This engine was stealing a weekend from us but we have other ways to play on the water. So we broke out our inflatable kayaks and paddled around the river. It was good exercise and a lot of fun. We soon worked up an appetite and paddled over to Coconut Joes which is the restaurant across the river from us and coincidentally owned by the same person who owned Calypso Bay, the restaurant/ bar that was walking distance from our old marina and some of our employee friends transferred there! We kayaked right up onto their lil beach and had bite to eat while trying to pick out our mast among the many at our marina in the distance.

Sunday was also a half work day (lets be serious, its always a half work day) because the series finale of LOST was coming on at 7 and we had to find a tv to watch it on! Yes we are LOST fans (we named our first dinghy Sawyer) and anyone else who is knows what a big deal this was. We ended up at Christines Grammys house to watch the 4 and half hour event and were sad as it ended.

One day we are going to find our own magical island to be lost on!
