Brian bought me flowers again (sigh) he is so sweet.

OK enough of the boring hair stuff back to the boat work. Brian and I have ramped up our departure dates to 18 months!!!

Some project are:
rebuilding all stuffing boxes
canvas dodger with rainfly
new VHF antenna
new head
new foam mattress
cushion covers
rebuild windlass

We are also adding spice racks in the galley, shelves in the storage compartments to add capacity. Pretty much the rest of the to do list can be done along the way. We also need to build up our spares for the engine and rigging. We want to be a bit minimalist, at least start out that way, then see how it goes.

Today Brian and I organized and cleaned Rain Dog, tomorrow we will work on Ocean Girl to get her ready to sell.

Locks Of Love

What he cut off weighed over a half a pound!! BUT my hair did a funny thing, and it surprised my hairstylist, it started to stand straight up. So we had to rethink the hair cut strategy, out with a bob and in with a pixie (short pixie too). We will tweak it over the next few months because it is rather boyish, but I love it.
Since I cut off all my blond I now have mousy brown hair, so tomorrow is my hair color appointment to blond it up until the summer sun can do it el natural.

Will post a final results picture for all to see :-)

This short hair is perfect for cruising, it dries so fast, reqires very little shampoo, and is easy to style.
