Today was once again warm and sunny (Stephen would say it
was hot, but there was a bit of breeze so Anne found it only warm). Stephen
spent most of the day telling Anne to take of her jacket! Anne spent most of
the day putting it back on when Stephen wasn’t watching.
We carried on with the laundry making the most of the good
Stephen was concerned about the tank readings on the diesel
and on further investigation we have found we have water in our diesel. As it
was Sunday we decided to wait until tomorrow to sort it out in case we need any
“professional” help. We have a number of theories about how the
water got in the tanks, but it’s unlikely we’ll ever prove any. At
least we found it before we had real problems with the engine.
We then started on some deck repairs replacing some teak
plugs. We also calibrated the anchor computer so that it can tell us how much
chain we have out.
Planning our route for the next year started in earnest
today. Our high level plan was to winter in Turkey. However we were informed by
one web site that you can only bring one pet into Turkey. As we love both our cats equally,
this was going to mess up our plans. However after researching on the Turkish
Consular web site, we discovered its one pet each. We now need to decide which
cat belongs to which person! We also need to make sure we don’t adopt any
strays on the way.
Tonight was a meal starting to use all the ingredients that
need eating soonest after our big food sort out yesterday.
