Yes I am behind once again but here we go. After arriving in the Chesapeake we arrived Hartges Yacht Harbor in Galesville, MD. We had a couple of weeks, a couple of trips, a few chores and as much visiting as we could slip in!

The Admiral was back to the sewing machine producing some great items for Magnolia. First up was a screen door for the Saloon Entrance. The edge pieces are secured with snaps while the center is a couple of magnetic strips.

In addition to the above the anchor windlass needed a cover made as well. This poor hunk of metal is tasked with bring our hundred pound anchor and hundreds of pounds of 3/8 in anchor chain.

Last but no least was an apron for my Barbeque Grill to prevent any splatter onto the woodwork below.

On the visitor front Annette’s brother, wife and friend came for a visit along with a lovely lunch. (names withheld) Always great to catch up!

We also had a lovely evening with Pentagon Sailing Members Laurie and Sean of SV Bootlegger. They recently complete a trip up to NJ and back which was great to hear about.

Labor Day Weekend we headed for New Jersey to celebrate my friend Jacks Birthday and retirement. To get the weekend started we were invited to dinner at Caitln and Andrews new home. What a wonderful evening and so much pride for these two!

Jack and “Brother Ted” discussing game rules associated the “60 in 2019” game..Dont ask!

It was a great trip but always nice to enjoy the back porch at home…

We were able to get a Sunday afternoon open to welcome the GenIVs and out token GenIII (James). Always a wonderful afternoon of visiting and catching up. Thank you all for making time to come out. Jim, Kyle and Jeannie
