Today when we went to the boat, there was a sea lion onboard! He had scrambled up through the gate on the stern.....Sea lions may be nice in the water, but they are smelly and ornery on land....Chuck and Rob chased him off immediately...The mainsail and staysail are up, and a we have finished a lot of the other work. People think it took a lot of energy to keep up with Nina, but that does not compare to the physical work of getting a cruising boat ready to go to sea. We are all very tired. Thank goodness Chuck is here to help us, so we have some extra help. off to take a nap, more photos and news tomorrow.
