David took off in the Teacher's Pet shortly after lunch, and I went out to repair the outboard motor on the Sprite, thinking that a new battery post terminal would take care of a problem or two with the way it had been starting.
I like to get out in the kayak and paddle as it is so quiet and relaxing, and whenever I get on the bay, I kind of "hang out" a long as possible. I had gotten a lot of work done around the house with staking plants, watering and weeding the upper garden and repairing a few things, so I went out in the bay with a clear conscience, nothing major sitting on the "to do" list. The boat ran fine, for a while, I still have an air leak somewhere in the fuel line, but I'm narrowing it down. What a day!
I was born in Ellsworth and grew up in Winter Harbor, Maine and have lived here most of my life. I received my Bachelor's (1973) and Master's (2005) degrees from the University of Maine. I am a Maine boy through and through.
