Tis not the season to be jolly!
Could you believe that the local radio stations are playing Christmas music? Before Halloween? What is this...
Today was the seasonal sad day. We took Morning Star, a friend's Hunter, up the river yesterday, Reboot today and tomorrow belongs to Why Knot. On the one hand I don't have to worry about freezing weather and snow. On the other hand seeing her in her cradle for the winter is just sad. Amazing that the yard is already pretty full but there are still a far number of boats at McKinley marina.
The only unusual part of all of this was the maritime security zone around LCS-1 USS Freedom. It extends out almost to the marina exit. Yesterday we got an escort along the breakwall. Today the Coast Guard just acknowledged we were doing the transit and watched us from a distance.
