Well sometimes there is not much to report from Foxtrot. However, since it is hump-day and you may need a diversion from whatever task is at hand at the moment, take a minute and be glad that you don’t operate the Boot Key Harbor Pump-out Boat. Yes, our fee at Boot Key Harbor includes one free weekly pump-out of the holding tank. The harbor’s 220 mooring balls are almost all taken so the pump-out boat is really moving the sewage around. We heard him pull up to our boat around 10 am. I stuck my head up to say “Hi” and snap a picture. Randall was down below pouring in the tank sanitizer formula so that, at least for a few days, we can enter the bathroom without holding our noses. “Ok all done,” called Toby from the pump-out boat. “You had ten gallons.” “Yeap,” I replied. “We like to fill it up.” I really have no idea what the average weekly sewage pump-out volume might be but I just feel confident we come in on the high end of the scale.
Also, we occasionally check on the mooring lines. We have a couple of lines tied to the mooring ball which keeps us in our little circular spot in the harbor. Today, we are facing south so we have a different view than last week which was mostly to the east. We also have several new neighbors since the wind died down enough for sailors to venture on down here from other spots.
Lily is working on schoolwork but we are going to shore as soon as I hit “publish” on this blog. My “publish” button should really read “hey have you edited this?” Anyway, I am sure some of the other kids have already been released from their harried homeschool teachers. I have lots of pics of Lily looking studious at the Foxtrot salon table but this one below isn’t one of them. Ok, she does have a math book in front of her but I’m not sure she is getting much done. As you can see, she picks her own clothes out everyday. Yes, this is a favorite of hers.
