I just found out that my favorite F.Z. “Mother” and piano player passed away last August. I think it was the day I had helicopters flying over me. All my heroes are passing 😦
Celebrity#2 My biggest blog commenter, author of Zen to Zero – The Naked Boat, Horacio, captain of S/V Jakatar, broke the 10,000 hit barrier on this blog. Cheers M8!!!
Saturday morning I awoke on Zoot Allures not knowing where I was. There was absolutely no movement at all. I jumped up, hustled out side to find everything soaking wet in a haze.
It wasn’t until 10:30 the sun managed to burn though and create one heck of a beautiful day and perfect sea … so perfect a spider built an awesome web on my stern rail. ‘Couldn’t shoot the web but got his breakfast. I Also did the dinghy bottom de-goo-ing thing with losta diving and snorkeling around.
Around lunch time I see a character with mask and snorkel swimming right next to ol’ Zoot taking pictures with an underwater camera. WTF… taking evidence of illegal moorings?? Breaking the ice, I ask him what camera he had.
He clears the snorkel from his mouth and says “geia sou, mastrora” Hey! It’s George, a good colleague from work who is into boats and photography, trying out a dinky little Olympus. He was there with his wife who was swimming all over the place while he came aboard for a while. They went off for lunch later to a waterside fish tavern where he took some pics with his real camera.
Here’s a “wet” picture collage of Zoot Allures and Kalo Gialo neighbors.
Sunday I spent most of the day ashore. Hung with Kostas abit at his house making arrangements for the haul out, and then lunch with the usual suspects. Vicky made “Jewish” cheese pies. Supposingly you put the flower in a pot of water and boil it to make the dough, Take egg size amounts out, fill with feta and pop ’em in the oven. Not bad, but no picture. I guess I’m not a photographer.
