Pirat in Pirate Cove (Click to see a whole album of pictures)
Lee’s parents visited Pirat in Rhode Island last weekend and were kind enough to send pictures of our boat in the most assembled state we’ve seen it in so far.
Moving day is a little more than a week away and there is plenty to do. There are boxes to pack for the moving van, more to pack for the trailer, and lots of stuff to get rid of. I also still need to come up with pirate costumes for our day of driving on Halloween…or maybe not.
We are spending the weekend practicing climbing anchors with the Colorado Mountain Club in Golden and then Lee will be out of town for most of next week. With all this going on I still feel like I should get some work done on my thesis before we leave. The clock is ticking!
After several more delays, Pirat officially became our boat today.
A captain moved it to Pirate Cove last Friday despite a leaky propellor shaft. Hopefully the boat’s not sinking as we speak!
Everything is wrapped up at South Wharf and the only thing left to do involving the previous owner (wow it’s satisfying writing that) is to pick up a bunch of gear that goes with the boat from his storage unit. Lee’s parents will probably do that this weekend when they go check on Pirat.
Now that the boat is there waiting for us, all Lee and I have to do is whittle down and then pack up our remaining possessions and drive 3/4 of the way across the country. No problem! Actually, it’s not looking too difficult after the gargantuan task of moving out of the warehouse.
I sent a carload of stuff to my mom’s house over the weekend. We drove to Oregon and dropped my dog, Doc, off with my cousin Kirstyn. It was strange leaving him there but he has a great new home.
Countdown to departure: 18 days!
