July 6th arrives. Blue sky. Sun. Gentle breezes. And Mark leaves. He and sailing friend Dorothy (aka Mermaid Girl) take the Amtrak back to Chicago. Sailing friend Jim Haring and I continue on Speakeasy. Today we plan to get to Saugatauk.
We've already lugged the twin bikes into the salon where they are resting on the salon berth -- carefully bungeed to a shroud in case the seas get bumpy.
My breakfast of fresh Michigan blueberries, oatmeal and cream (real cream!) was delicious. How easy it would be to stay here another few days, but we haven't sailed since Friday, and Speakeasy is raring to go. Delightful that our boat has a acquired a personality. In a word, she's "rassig." Get out your German dictionaries for clarification. Or wait for my next blog.
