Generally bumbling along.
The leather protection on the gaff jaws is now very dry and worn.
I drench the leather with lanolin. I love lanolin. It comes from sheep fleece and is very greasy – very good on boils.
It looks like the rainy season is finally over and we celebrate with a dinner. Just 4 of us so as to be Covid rules compliant. Best fun. We eat charcuterie, sautéed foie gras with delicious pickled cucumber salad, steak with coleslaw and finally fruit. We wash this down with lots of ice cold Nagano cider and a bottle of Californian Zinfandel with the steak.
The weather is beautiful. I sail.
I bump into one tooth Kiyuna san. ” I have bought a new boat! Let’s have coffee.”
I actually think he was given the boat. The engines do not work. To Kiyuna san this is a no worries situation. He makes coffee and we tell jokes.
I will have two implants er implanted into my jaw on Friday. I tell Kiyuna san and also the exorbitant price. ” Neil san, you could buy a boat for that money! You could name her “Implants”!
