“If I ever leave you it will be because of your V-berth”  These were the first words I heard today and started to laugh.  Serena had to be at work and I didn’t.  I steamrollered over her and wedged myself between her and Chloe  pulling all the blankets around us.  “Its freezing in here, COFFEE PLEASE!

Serena tumbled out of the V-beth and Chloe piled after her hoping for bacon scraps.  All snug as a bug in a rug, I could hear the steam whistling out of the kettle, and Chloe eating her breakfast, pa chomp, pa chomp, pa chewy chomp.  It was going to be another beautiful day.

Morning started at 17 degrees with the wind chill.

“Alan Can you Help Me”?

“Whats Wrong”?

“The boat is frozen shut”.

This isn’t the first time I have had to break out of the boat, one big whack with my back against the sliding hatch and we were free.

After a piping hot cup of Joe, I bundled up to take Chloe for a walk.  Squish, shuish, creak, squish, the dock was frozen solid.  I stopped briefly looking back at poor frozen little The` and smiled.  “Summers coming baby”.
