What a relaxing day! We didn't get up at 5:30 AM, we didn't weigh an anchor or untie lines. We slept in a little. We dropped Striper off at Northfield Animal Hospital to be groomed and have a retest for Lyme and other tick borne illnesses -- negative and we are to give her the antibiotic prescribed by the vet in North Carolina. Then we stopped at West Marine to pick up a quart of paint, with a side trip to Hot Bagels and More for the best bagels on earth (so far the bagels we've had in the south don't compare at all). Mmmmmm.
We drove to Little Egg Harbor to drop off our isenglass panels that were damaged in the wind along our way north to our friend, Val. We then went back to pick up Striper, who looks gorgeous, dropped her off at the boat, and went to Gilchrist's for lunch. Ralph had creamed chipped beef (like no other) and I enjoyed scrapple and an egg. I have so missed scrapple and they make it just right. It was nice to see some of our old friends. What a restful day.
Here are a few photos from today:
