August 31, 2010 - I ran out of time to write a good letter. I got the
Photo Album finished and inserted a few comments here and there among the
photos. But we are sailing in a couple of hours and I need to be
ready. It will be about a 30 hour sail and I don't know if I'll have
an internet connection when I get there. So I'm uploading the
website now, and maybe I'll write more later. We are leaving Ibiza
Island and sailing to Cartegena, Spain on the mainland.
I've just got to say that we had a fantastic month socializing with
great friends. And last month was extra special because I got to go
home for a couple of weeks. It was such fun to hang out with my
daughter and see my grandkids. They are all so darned
precious. I love their unique personalities and find them endlessly
Frighteningly, another spot of basal cell carcinoma skin cancer was
discovered on my leg. I was able to have it removed by my doctor in
California, but I had to find a doctor in Mallorca to remove the eleven
stitches. It healed well and everything is fine now. But this
is happening too often!
And while I'm having this pity party, I might add that our computer
crashed and the hard drive had to be reformatted, and Mike's wallet got
stolen at the bus stop which launched me into hours and hours of
frustrating phone calls with our bank and VISA card companies.
As for the boat, we had the refrigerator and the generator serviced and
repaired. And just today Mike finally got the water maker working
again. He was waiting until our guests departed, so he could get
under the bunk to pull out the water maker. Our world is good
again! Everything works!
Now, we're off to Cartegena, Spain!
