Prep day

Posted on

Today was the day to prepare for tomorrows departure. We went to the grocery store and stocked up on a few things, and also loaded all the diesel cans in the dinghy again to go fill them up.

It’s been so fun taking Mommy around with us. She does so well with the boating routine.

Danny was very busy all day, installing the inverter. Now with it installed, DC is converted to AC, allowing us to use outlets without shore power or the generator running.

Our work is finally done here in Marathon, and we are ready to move on to the next adventure. Very early tomorrow morning we will pull up lines from the mooring ball and head out through Sister Creek, and out into open ocean. It looks like the wind will be right on our nose, so we will have to tack clear out for a while and then turn and tack in to Key Largo. We’ll have the fishing lines out and hope to catch some fish.

There is a family of 6 who are interested in the cruising life, that will sail with us to Key Largo. They are currently living in an RV and touring the US. It’ll be fun to show them how Tanda Malaika feels under sail. So, tonight we have 14 people all comfortably tucked into bed and excited for tomorrows passage.
