When doors open, all you have to do is walk in.
This past weekend was time to do whacha supposed to do when you have a sailboat. Do a bit of sailing, eat, sleep, enjoy some good company. I got the genoa on (all by my pretty little self… another first) and picked the first couple of guest. A very good friend of mine Kenan and his squeeze Katerina.Once settled in we let go of the mooring and sailed out to Perati Island just 3 miles away. There we swam, ate, drank, chilled and, well you know, just vegged out. They had brought a bunch of food 🙂 which makes my life easier (I obviously pulled out the camera too late!…burp). One of which was a bean called kouki (κουκί). They didn’t let me eat it because if you don’t get checked out, it may kill you. WTF! I tried one and it was delicious! Anyhoo, I convinced them to stay over, we hit the harbor in the evening and had some dinner and wine with the cuz-es (G.S. and Vicky), only to return to ol’ Zoot where I passed out instantly!
Next morning, bright and early, I blasted out to the train station to pick up Alexandra and a friend Christine. Kenan and Kat had to head back into town and the girls and I pretty much spent the day in the same motivo…. Perati Island, swim, eat, drink, hang etc etc.
Damn this is rough!!
Having friends and guest over is great fun. Sure, it makes you a bit busier taking care of them and entertaining and making sure they don’t kill themselves (Kenan had an accident 3 years ago climbing the mob ladder which I’m not getting into) but the biggest reward are the smiles on their faces. Gee, I wish I had a friend with a sailboat all these years!
Stay tuned…. hey, and no pushing. Stay in line and wait your turn!
ps…. holy crap. Next week is July! Time to finish up the “issues” and haul ass outahere!
