Leaving La Cruz

Yummy bread... thanks Tami!
It's official... we are out of the marina as of 10:30 am on April 21st. There was only a minor crisis at the fuel dock when Camelot (who we thought was fueling up at the commercial side) began backing up as we were pulling forward into the other side (we really should have called them on the radio to confirm their intentions)... no worries. Tom was super cool.

I think it helps to be acquainted with an individual when boat fiasco-drama occur. Otherwise, we all seem to talk about how stupid someone else's decision was.... how they don't know how to drive a boat... what kind of a moron... that bleep-bleep-bleep idot!... blah-blah-blah. When you know the person and boat drama occurs between the two, then it's no biggie... water on a duck's back... Acuna Matta... See ya at the next potluck!

What really made our morning was the fresh baked bread that Tami on Andiamo III hand delivered. What joy! And I am making it known that she has a bread maker aboard her 43 Hans Christian. I never thought of a bread maker aboard Hotspur. We have never stayed in marinas enough to enjoy a bread maker. However, I look back at the past three years an take note that we have spent 30% of our cruising time in marinas. Now, my little brain is clicking away at the amount of homemade bread that could have been consumed at HEAT-FREE CABIN temps and it is sounding more appealing everyday. Thank you, Tami. Girl, you ROCK! Okay, Loretofest... here we come!

  1. Enjoy your blog a lot - thanks! I thought you might like to know that you can always bake bread on a grill if you have one outside on your rail. There's tons of info out on the web but here's a good site:

    It keeps it nice and cool inside the boat and you get nice crusty loaves. You can make crustless bread in the pressure cooker as well.

    Take care and keep up the great blog!
