Only the guy who isn't rowing has time to rock the boat.

New neighbors

Hi everybody. Hope your day is going great. We have had a little excitement here today. The port pulled a boat over and parked it next to us. They are also live aboards. They had their boat moored down the dock in the open slips and now that they are going to be living aboard I guess they wanted to be under the covered moorage. It is more expensive to have covered moorage but if you are living aboard, it's almost a must have. It increases the usable square footage.
The Coast Guard Axillary was here at the Marina today. Promoting water safety to children. They had the cutest little boat on wheels, with eyeballs and a speaker to talk through, all controlled by a handheld remote. They walked up and down the prom talking to all the little kids and handing out little trinkets.
Then, a boating safety group set up a tent/booth to hand out pamphlets on water safety and they were  also giving free boat inspections.
Busy, busy day down here at the water. All it takes is a bit of sun and people are here in numbers. Walkers, bike riders, joggers, dog walkers. And I don't want to leave out the beautiful little finches that have been singing their hearts out for us lately. They are, red, yellow, white, black. They sing to each other from tree to tree. They are just the cutest little guys. As a child we raised yellow finches. Our house could get crazy loud at times.
Well, back tomorrow, have a wonderful rest of the day!
