Happy Birthday To Me!

I'm posting very late but for a great reason. I don't know if you can remember, but in an earlier post I mentioned my favorite boat on the island was the tugboat James Dunlop. Well, by some miracle Goldfish made arrangements for me to get a ride on the James Dunlop for a birthday surprise! We were on it for two hours while we moved a big cargo ship off the dock and got it pointed out to sea - what an experience! The captain has been doing it for 18 years up here, 75 days on/75 days off, and he was a super nice guy who patiently answered my million questions. I'll post more pictures tommorow. Additionally, Goldfish got me two sets of Frog Togs raingear and an Aluet Dictionary - but it was the tugboat ride that was the frosting on my birthday. Cheers everyone, it's late and we're getting our first cod delivery of the season tommorow.

Yeah, not too many pictures of me because I'm always the one taking the photos . . . I loved the tugboat ride, that was a sweet surprise and it was amazing to hear what 4000 horsepower sounds like when it's working . . love ya

No miniature golf - they do have an annual Tundra Golf Classic with teams playing their best ball - or at least the best ball they can find since the course is just laid out on a hillside. It took place a couple weeks ago. That leaves you very missed . . . love ya
