Back to the Salt Mines

And so concludes our first commute to our coastal home of Southport, NC. Actually Gigi is still there. She will come home on Tuesday. She has been on the coast in the RV approaching two weeks.

As you recall, I towed the Jeep behind my truck last Friday. Haley and I drove the Jeep back last night.

I woke up this morning with 4 days of beard growth, a tan face and a good attitude about Monday.

Now I am planning a daring repair mission over Memorial Weekend to repair the sewer valve and to build a ramp for my dogs.

Before you conclude my dogs are a sorry lot remember that Cedie only has three legs, Duke has full use of three legs, Peaches is old and heavy and looses her balance.

Haley is the only dog that can still defy gravity and float most anywhere she pleases.

I never did get a chance to get the boat in the water since we had visitors the only day possible.

We found some good places to eat and hang out on the water front down at the yacht basin. Several have boat slips for guests so I’ll be there by boat next time.

Oh, one last thing. I bought a new and bigger anchor as Micky T suggested.

Your dogs are lucky to have you. I have one dog who is old and has weak hind legs. I can't imagine managing 3 or 4 of them.

Sounds like your new vacation spot is a winner. I'm glad it all worked out so well.

My brother in law and I built a ramp for my sister's dog when they moved into their house in Omaha. The dog couldn't handle the back stairs and use the doggy door very easily so we went to Home Depot and got all the plywood and built a pretty fancy ramp for her. She seemed to appreciate it quit a bit too.

I got to come up with a way for my dog to get back in Malihini. I might put a swim platform on.

note: test and play with anchor before you NEED it.
