Day 77, Year 9: On the Twelfth Day of Christmas . . . Quiet
Date: Sunday, January 5, 2014
Weather: Overcast; Warming Up
Location: Brewer Fiddler’s Cove Marina, North Falmouth, Massachusetts

The twelfth day of Christmas was a very quiet day here on Windbird. Mark repaired the platform that is our entry to the boat from the dock. It moved around so much in the heavy winds on Thursday night that some boards came loose. So he bolted and screwed it together this time. I did laundry and prepared the boat for overnight guests. Tomorrow our friends Heather and Jon Turgeon arrive. We met Heather and Jon when we lived aboard in Boston in 2003 to 2005. They are now sailing around the world and are home for a visit. We are very excited to see them tomorrow. It will be a short visit, but we’ll just talk fast!
