Yes friends…it’s high time for an update from the Masseys. We parked the boat in Baltimore this summer while Dean had his rotator cuff repaired. After surgery and lots of physical therapy we’re thinking that he will be back to 100% by ski season.
Note to fellow boaters:Hanging over the bow of the boat and yanking on an anchor chain may be harmful to your health.
Checking on Snowcat
In October we made a 10-day trip to the Chesapeake to work (and play) on the boat. We managed to visit some of our favorite anchorages and ate plenty of crab and local oysters.
It always makes us nervous to leave Snowcat for a long time. Right now, she is at a marina in Baltimore under the watchful eye of Alan. He will finish the winterizing process and check on her regularly over the winter.
We’re Keeping Busy
While home, Dean has been spending time at his old school in Oak Creek helping the science program. He’s also been tapped to fill in an unexpected opening at Colorado Mountain College. He will be teaching college biology for the rest of 2019.
I have taken on leadership of a Girl Scout troop for the coming year. My Brownie troop is a gaggle of energetic 8-year-old girls…oh my. I’m enjoying Zumba and yoga classes until the ski season kicks in. We’ve purchased Ikon season passes this year, so we plan to make the most of the coming ski season.
Come Visit Us
We’ll be in Steamboat over the winter, so if any of our cruising friends want to escape the warmth of their boat and visit us in Colorado, please give us a shout.1
