Saturday April 15, Day 5.
Yea – Arden is returning with his other grandparents today. Can’t wait to see our 19mo old grandson. We spent much of the day at Sarah’s. I was finishing some boat curtains and doing lots of laundry and Dirk was a sweaty sweety and mowed their lawn. He also went back and forth to the boat a few times with parts to fix the engine. Arden arrived was a charming and funny as ever. Dirk and I took care of him later while Sarah went out and I was impressed with his new concentration and determination to figure things out. I gave bath toys that stick together with suction and just kept trying to figure out how they worked.
Back at the boat… A pretty bad night. You know your dockage is more than uncomfortable when you start thinking at 2am about what to grab if the boat is really sinking. A large boat went by at about 12:30 am and the wake was so bad that we were almost tossed out of bed and we heard a crack sound on the side of the boat. I was mad at the boat and disturbed that the marina was so hands off about our difficulties.
I didn’t want to stay another night, but we wanted to be in the area to celebrate Easter with my daughter’s family and her in-laws.
