Yep, we have been in Channel Islands Harbor for a week now!
Thought we would come in for our two free nights.
Arrange a permanent slip.
Wash the boat.
Fill the water tanks.
Say hi to a few people.
Say bye to the same few people.
Head back out to the islands.
Didn't quite happen that way.
Happened more like this way:
Call for slip.
Told no liveaboards.
Call for other slip.
Told they will check and call us back.
And wait some more.
Call on another slip.
Told they have one and fall over when they tell us price.
Get phone call with other slip options.
Couldn't fall over when we were told these even higher prices, because we haven't gotten up from the first fall over yet.
Call for still another slip.
Would need shoehorn to get us into what they have.
Used shoehorn karma up already getting into Koehler Kraft.
Leave message at other place.
Leave message at yacht club.
No one calls back.
More phone calls.
Pay for a few more nights.
Get job offer before my 3 month stint at ex job.
That's a good one in this economy!
Wait for the owners to discuss me.
They call me.
They say ok I can work before, during and after my 3 months stint at ex-job.
I pay for a month slip.
Here we are.
Get paperwork from both adjoining cities and harbors for Jim to re-start his business.
Start insurance paperwork for Jim.
Which entailed me going in to my old office and typing the app and emailing.
Scared soon to be co-workers into thinking girl who took over my desk already out on maternity leave.
Nope, she just went to the bathroom.
Figure out a slip.
Slip needs to be altered.
Call friend who builds docks.
Has to wait for head dude to return from Africa to bid and ok slip alteration.
Run into friends all over the place.
Job started today.
Not quite what we had in mind, I think...
So Glad I Went to the Doctor!
