The rain has let up with only drizzle and wind remaining. Bob made several trips to land to visit the marine store and to take up recycling, as well as finding some ice cream that was on sale, as the season was almost over with. He met Will and Eleanor who mentioned a pasta fundraising dinner tonight at the church a mile up the road. We had seen the notice in the marine store vestibule a few days ago but didn’t feel like walking there in the cool, wet weather. They offered to give us a ride which we accepted.
Jeremy (Mainship next door) and Eleanor came by, later joined by Walt and Bob gave them a preview of Active Captain and Coastal Explorer. Of course it wasn’t working well. Bob found out later that the software had begun an automatic chart update and had been in the midst of that at the time. They both showed us places to stop south of here. For the rest of the day we went through paperwork and read all day with the heat on.
At 5:15pm we went with Walt and Eleanor to the dinner. The pasta was cooked to perfection, and the meatballs and sausage were spiced just right. Nothing like a jucy meat ball sandwich made with buttered french bread sliced at an angle. It turned out that two tables had been reserved by the Georgetown Yacht Club which we ended up joining. We sat at a table with Commodore John and Ed and Vicky and got more local knowledge of stops south of here. Returning to the boat we soon went to bed to read and sleep again! Ashore under the big tent there is a party going on. I can just here booming now and then but Bob says it is the worst music ever! Generation gap I think.
