Tuesday June 17. Just a teaser?

Written by Jack van Ommen on June 17th, 2014

The 4 weeks of summer weather turned into dark, cool, showery fall like weather. When the sun manages to break through momentarily it warms up quickly. But a good excuse to sit glued to the t.v. watching the World Cup. There is a large screen t.v. in the marina lounge and the only American channel we can get for it is the Spanish language station. I missed last Friday’s game Holland-Spain but the news papers and t.v news are full of it. I’ll be watching Holland-Australia at 9 a.m. Pacific time tomorrow.

There is an album of photos of the June 4 presentation at the GHYC and the Blessing of the Fleet taken by Sheila Mordue on the GHYC website at:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/ghyc/sets/72157645114958741/#

The Tuesday after Pentecost the nice folding bike, which Roger Rue had given me, was stolen. I had it chained to a fence here in the marina. Stolen sometime during the day after 7 a.m. Another dock neighbor, John, lets me use his 10 speed rode bike to get around town.

I am making progress on organizing the boat. The galley had to be totally outfitted since besides the one burner propane stove there was nothing. Local friends brought me a number of items and on Friday morning Jackie Clement, Ruth Gordon and Janet James gave me house warming party with lots of good stuff for the galley and bathroom. Lisa and her birth mother Donna came over on Saturday morning with more gifts and a fancy new watch as a father’s day present. I had lost the watch, my children gave me for Christmas 2011, in Syracuse, Sicily in the summer of 2012.
