Yesterday, we were hanging and waiting the shipment of our two new boat bikes. It gave Randall a chance to take the outboard apart and try to fix the reluctant pull cord. It took much longer than expected because the coil spring came flying out once the thing was apart. But two hours later, it was all back together and pulling a little better. Jake and I walked up to the marina office expecting to lug the gigantic boxes back since some assembly was required. Thankfully, the marina supervisor, Joan, set us up with some tools in the back room. We unboxed the bikes and they were pretty much ready to ride. We flew home singing “Freedom. Freedom. Freedom.”
Ok I sang. Jake just peddled faster to put distance between us. We moved over to Bayboro Harbour for the weekend since the moorings are all reserved for the Blues Fest. That’s OK though since our friends on T Maru are back and Lily will want to hang with Archer. Randall and I took the bikes for a test spin in the evening. I asked him didn’t he want to ride to Tierra Del Fuego. I like to say this because of my fascination with the bike journey of Familyonbikes dot com. I guess that plan is a little ambitious but I do hope to put lots of fun, exploring miles on our boat bikes.
I’m sitting at the airport this morning waiting my flight to St. Louis. I get back tomorrow night and then we have the weekend to plan a departure for the Keys.
