This Saturday morning, we got going a bit late. Bruce's back was bothering him but it loosened up once we started moving around. We went to look at a Van that Bruce found on Craig's List, pretty much made a deal all but a test drive and writing a check. Bruce will go back on Monday and do all of that if it meets his standards. Goodbye old beat up van... good riddance. We loaded up our stuff and boarded Elan to follow the BYC Pack out to Flato Cut. We had a beautiful sail across the bay with nice winds and about 6 tacks. There was no dolphin show today. There were already 11 boats anchored in Flato when we arrived. People were buzzing around in their dinghies. We couldn't get our old faithful dinghy motor started so we were collected by Dean and Aleta.
We sped over to the "Raft-Up" The plan was to bring wine (or in my case, fruity drink) and cheeses. Everyone was passing around the plates of stuff when we arrived. We had our own problems! Do you know how difficult it is to balance platters and drinks while bobbing around in a dinghy pack?
If that wasn't bad enough... the motor boat we had attached ourselves to started up their motor and began dragging our little flotilla around. Some things seem better in the idea stage than in actuality.
