Day’s Run – 23 April 2019

Very broad squall this morning at dawn ushering in an overcast day. Clothes set to soak for a big washing later. Soon a talk on the islands and what is to come. Planks getting cut for ANN, the boat we’re restoring aboard. New life ring holders getting welded on. Small jobs everywhere. Liz is in the galley as Donald’s assistant for the week to learn some of his magic. Making good time and am hoping for a weekend landfall. But never count your chickens before they hatch….
