Labor Day Weekend: No boating around here

Not much boating this weekend at American Wharf (or anyplace else around here) as former hurricane/former tropical storm Hermine churns away off the coast. The sky was overcast for a lot of the time and we had to content ourselves with lots of socializing on the docks. That's something that A-Dock does very well.

A high spot for us was the fact that September 5 was Frances' birthday. Of course, she received a birthday crown and a bottle of wine from our dockmates.

And a shot of her sitting down, crown slightly askew... She'll wear that crown for the next week!

 One member of our crew couldn't care less about tropical storms or special birthdays. Pooka knows how to relax.

 The media loves to characterize Labor Day as the "end of summer" but for us it isn't. We have another 45 days or so of wonderful fall weather ahead of us. We're in a great "hurricane hole" so even if it blows, we're relatively safe. We have a few complaints about how the marina is run, but all in all, it's a nice place to be.
