The Nigel Calder Apron
With cloudy skies and lots of breeze we decided to volunteer at Warderick Wells for the day. In exchange for six hours of your time (in our case, 12 hours since we both worked), you are given a free mooring for one night. It has been a very long time since either one of America's Top Lawyers or his wife worked for a buck and a quarter per.
But, we were happy to give something back to this wonderful refuge. Nancy will probably be able to repair anything that breaks on Blue Bay now, since she wore Nigel Calder's apron all day long. She and I gave two teak benchs acid washes and bleach treatments, then sorted sundry screws, washers, nails and odd parts contributed by another vessel in one big bucket. Peter and Dick reattached a rubrail on one of the Park's runabouts.
A good days work with the reward of a wonderful location.
