Day: 253  Miles: 00   Total Miles: 2889  Locks: 23

Just wanted to let all know we are still alive and kicking.

I visited my knee doctor and he just said come back in two weeks and we’ll see.  The knee is doing well.  I am walking fine now and doing steps, etc.  The knee joint is still a bit sore.  But so far I am encouraged.

This week was Barbara’s turn at the medical facilities.  She came down with a severe eye infection. We did the emergency room bit thinking it was conjunctivitis but after two days it became worse and not better.  She finally got in to see an eye specialist and it was not conjunctivitis.  She is on new meds and the eye is doing much better.  We go back to see that doc on Monday.

What a pair we are.  Just goes to show you that this glamorous job of helping the economy by living on a yacht does not make us exempt from those medical problems that plague all 60 year olds.

As far as our plans go, I predict that someday we will leave this location; it just won’t be for a few more weeks.  The weather has been horrible.  Yesterday was the first day that it did not rain and we have already been here 20 days.  The internal optimist in me says that we are getting all of the wet days out of the way so that when we continue our adventure it will be bright and sunny.

It looks like we will not be able to complete the planned loop this year.  These delays have started to add up.  However, do not fear.  You will just get to receive these silly updates for a longer period of time.  I am in the planning mode right now and will let you know hopefully in the next edition.

We celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary this week and today is Barbara’s “39” th birthday.  The Captain cannot lie.

An Adventure, One Day At A Time
