Rocking to sleep tonight

Wow was it hot when I arrived.  It's taken a little time to get used to the heat, but it was nice to get rocked to sleep by the motion of the gentle waves and the slight swaying of the boat.

We started on installing the new Davits- now that's a challenge, but they're looking pretty good and it will be so nice to have the solar panels moved off the deck and also to get the dinghy out ofthe water at night, it makes for a cleaner bottom and way less scrubbing at the end of the season as well as protects it from theft, which can be prevalent in some areas.. As we were sitting in Lindburg Bay last night, enjoying a rum punch, the sun set spectaculariy over the water and the most gorgeously decorated sailboat came cruising thru the bay with christmas lights on just about every surface possible. It was spectacular.
Tonight there is a lovely cooler breeze so I know I'll sleep well.
