Socializing at Solomons

While First Edition gets its annual primping at Zahnisers, we have had the opportunity to catch up with friends and make new ones. Pictured is our latest acquaintance, Freebie, whom we met along with Sassy and Gypsy at the Franklins' while enjoying Peter's favorite meal, fried chicken. I now understand why my fried chicken does not make the grade; I have no patience for the frying process.

We caught up with Sue and Ian on Kokopeli, whom we met a few years ago in Charleston and, as it turned out, crossed over to the Abacos with us a few years ago. We had a very good meal at DiGiovanni's, where on Tuesday, you can get a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, or ravioli for $10.95. This is not Vincenzo's quality, but heh, they sold out and their delicious veal dishes are a thing of the past. We had another Italian meal aboard Cloverleaf while dodging rain drops to and fro.

While at Zahnisers we have been busy messing about with the boat, repainting the chain to mark various lengths, checking hose clamps, taking inventory on our food stuffs and medications, touching up the Cetol, the list goes on and on. We now are awaiting this tropical low or whatever it is to blow through so that our new spinnaker pole can be installed and we can provision before heading off to Mill Creek. Or, perhaps, back to Annapolis.

No, not for the boat show. Why? Frigoboat. It isn't working again and my heretofore declaration of continued love and admiration for the system is quickly fading. I am becoming a cheerleader for Peter to pull out his law degree and get it fixed for once, and for good. Any body interested in the Frigoboat refrigeration system should talk with us first. We have all of our woes documented. When it works, it's great.
