Billy loves air conditioning and yoga
If you read the previous post then you know that Travis and I have been perfecting the "rolling and tipping dance" while planning a small wedding aboard Lucy Maru. Well it all got to be too much. We kept coming back to our back up question in times of uncertainty ..."what would 'normal' people do"?
Indeed it seemed ridiculous to be restoring a boat with an arbitrary deadline of early August, so we can invite our parents, who in our eight year relationship have never met, aboard our boat/home to perform the equivalent of a theatrical production surrounded by decorations that cost way to much. OK, so as you can guess, we are not going to do that. Phew!
Instead we are going to get a marriage license in a nice and private courthouse ceremony, just me and T, and invite the folks to meet each other when its convienient for all involved. This plans feels so much better!
Having made this decision we decided to relax a bit and have some fun. We have, after all, in three weeks, painted the hull of Lucy Maru, painted the deckhouse, painted some overhead sections, and painted and varnished the stern. So yeah, we're beat. Coz you see when I say painted, what I really mean is we sanded, then wiped down, then painted... then sanded then wiped down then painted again all of the above mentioned boat sections, all while keeping our day jobs, which are not the usual nine to five grinds, but still take their toll. Ahhh...relaxation is well deserved and well appreciated.
While Me Voy waits, T perfects his skillz on something a bit smaller
Lucy Maru's hull is all painted!
Chopper watches as Travis goes sailing. The stern we worked so hard on the last week, is now varnished and ready for letters
Lucy Maru is such a pleasure to live on! We are so privilaged to live on this classic cruiser. I only hope we can simplify with grace when it comes time to move aboard Me Voy.
We must get Me Voy out of this Satellite Hell as soon as possible, which
looks like next Fall perhaps?
