Back in Corpus

Three days after Christmas and we are back in Corpus Christi for another try at our first sail in the Catalina 25. Neither of us slept very well last night and were both up early and ready to go. By 6:00 a.m. we were on the road and got into Corpus by 3:00 p.m. We checked in at the marina as "live-a-boards" and then checked that the boat was still afloat (never sure). On the way down, we listened (not read) about half of "The Life of Pi". Anna recommended this book (tape) to us and it is very interesting. It will be fun finishing it on the way home. After a quick trip to West Marine for rigging supplies, it was back to the boat for a supper of soup, bread, and wine and a resumption of the book that we started on the last trip, "The Log of the Skipper's Wife". This is an extremely interesting and entertaining look into the lives of a 1911 seafaring couple. We highly recommend it.

Tomorrow we sail.
