Special summer treats like this one are on tonight's agenda. Shakespeare By the Sea - The Merchant of Venice. The more popular Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market and the small scale Historic Farmer's Market on Saturday will provide some much-craved produce, fresh bread and cheeses for a possible Saturday day sail as well as some minimal provisioning for our approaching departure/maiden voyage.
We've taken some big steps toward our departure in Halifax. We purchased our Canada and US maps, a VHF radio (we'll install this weekend), cleaned almost every nook & cranny, completed a couple day sails to practice anchoring and mooring, and finally hired a diver who scrubbed and scraped our hull bottom clean of living creatures, grasses, seeds and who-knows-what alien-like lifeforms that have taken a liking to Aletheia's bottom. She moves so nicely now!
Tonight we're hanging out with local friends to kick off the weekend and have been invited to a Saturday night dinner party. Hope you all enjoy your weekend too! Got any plans? Doing something new?
