I'll try to find some way for her to get off and on the boat, at the next marina. We'll have to get off the boat at the front, which sits higher then the back of the boat. The finger pier that run along side the boat, from the dock, is only 8 feet long. So it will be difficult.
I'll figure out something. I have to,,, we could be there waiting on a weather window for weeks. Carrabelle is a small town with nothing going on, other than being a departure site to cross the Big Bend.
On another note, we have been pre-paying for cat kibble and our neighbor has been dumping 40 lbs at a time under our carport, for the ferals. He doesn't like cats (or any animals) but he's doing it for us.
I see 7 in the pics his wife sent, and I don't see the ones I liked the most. Blackie (the one that tore through the screen and escaped from being moved),, Goldy, who's the brother of one of my pet cats, Ginger,, and Patches (she has no tail). I figured they died.
However, yesterday, his wife sent a photo from their back porch, and it was Goldy! It doesn't relieve the pain of not knowing what happened to Ginger and the other 3 pets, but made me feel good anyway. I was doing well taming Goldy so I might get to see him when we return in late June.
We'll probably never know the fate of our 4 pet cats, so there will be no closure there. Seeing a feral I liked, helps a tiny bit though.
Have a nice Monday and TY for voting and being friends
Cute pic Mary and you are cold with fog. Cold with sun here today. Patrick hope all is well. Voted hi Ruth. All have a nice Monday
Good afternoon friends. Karen and I went to the laundramat and washed any dirty clothes we could find. Now everything on the boat is clean. Then we went to Walmart (which always sucks) and stocked up on provisions. Tonight and tomorrow is severe T'storms, so we'll have to keep a close eye on our fenders and the dock. I moved the fenders from the boat to the pylons on the dock, so they can provide bumper no matter where the boat shuffles around during the storms.
Still looking like a departure date of this Thursday, although the storms tonight and tomorrow will have the seas sloppy for Thurs., but the winds will have subsided and won't be dead on our nose, nor against the current. That helps.
Our neighbor thinks she may have seen Blackie! She feeds an outside cat at their place, which is black (probably Blackie's dad) but has a white spot on his chest. Blackie is solid black. He's a cool cat, even if he did tear a hole in my office window screen and get away. Otherwise, he would have gone to National Tiger with 17 other ferals and our 5 pets.
We're getting pretty stoked about this next passage, first time anchoring (something we need to get good at). We want to be good at it, because if the anchor drags, we could damage the boat.
I hope everyone has a nice Tuesday and your weather better than ours. TY for voting and putting up with my long news on our boating adventure.
I hope all works out OK with the kitties Patrick and your adventure and Karen. Hi Mary and Ruth cold and sun here. Enjoy Tuesday Voted.

Pandas are so cool, and those lions making their way through the marsh. Lions don't care much for water,,, tigers love water.
We had horrible storms early this morning. Gusts up to 60 mph. The boat was rocking and rolling. Glad we were not out to sea in it. We postponed our departure for tomorrow, until Fri. More about it on my FB page.
Have a great camel day and TY

Cute pix Patrick and Mary, glad too Patrick you missed the storms. Warmer here today but windy. Voted Hi Ruth all have a nice Thursday,
Great pics ladies, as always.
We are pulling out very early, then we'll be anchoring in a cove called Oxbow, on the intercoastal, so I may not be able to check in tomorrow. I have already finished the newsletter and have it scheduled to send automatically
I admit, I have a small case of the jitters, but that's a good thing,, it makes one more cautious. Caution is good when going out to sea.
Have a great Thursday,, and an awesome Friday (in case I can't get online)
