While the work was ongoing we spent time in Seattle with the kids and grandkids and had a
great visit.We all went on a cruise of the harbor in a Sparkmans and Stevens oceangoing racing sailboat.Little Evangeline was on watch for whales and sharks and unfortunately she saw none but still enjoyed the sail.Next we returned home to Madison,Ohio and got to go to a barrel tasting party at our favorite winery-Harpersfield Winery.The owners are such great friends and we enjoyed an overnight stay above the press house followed by dinner.They just released the new Gewurztraminer wine and we stocked up the boat.
Now we are back to Annapolis and catching up with cruising friends and resupplying for the trip back down the I.C.W. in Sept.Our next week will be spent making the topsides sparkle a bit as they need lots of TLC compared to the new Awlgrip on the sides.
