Is the world ending? I'm ... shhhh....ahead of the game!!!!!

Of course, now that I said that, something will come up to ruin everything but I think we're ahead of the game a bit for getting ready to go on vacation! Yep - another vacation. DH gets 3 weeks off a year and all 3 weeks are done during the summer since we own the sailboat. Today I purchased all of the non-perishable food and put it all away already. I went through the cabinets, took off things that we won't need and made all the beds. Everyone has their towels for the first week (each person gets a fresh water towel and a salt water towel so we don't end up with a gazillion dirty towels) too. We sent our 17 year old up the mast to fix the wind vane (it tells us the wind speed and wind direction on a display at the wheel) and we got some great pictures and even a video! She had a ball going up there - DH and I about had a heart attack hoisting her there. LOL So to share what she saw, here are some pics:

Here's the video too:

wow Ann, what a beautiful boat and that a dead body on the other boat or a lady in an odd position? I'm kidding I know it's not a dead body....but it's late and my mind gets al boogedy...ROFL. How cool that Nicole can go up in the mast now....tell her awesome job it looks really high!

Thanks for sharing the pics with us.

Oh My socks Ann. My stomach was rolling watching Nicole film that video. Beautiful pictures, but I would have been too chicken to watch her up there.

She was too funny when she said "Good thing I'm not afraid of heights". I almost covered my monitor with coffee! Brave girl! Good job Nicole!
