Dec 28, 2011

After posting on here last night, I saw this pretty sunset.


We’re anchored at the N end of Blue Creek. This is looking at the entrance of Lake George.


Around midnight there was a noticeable chill in the air. The temperature had started to drop significantly. I sat up and read for a few hours and by then it was definitely getting cold.

I had a heating pad hung on the backside of Babe’s bird cage, and turned that on periodically. I also filled the thermos with hot water…left the stopper out so the top would get warm and used that as her radiator. She was nice and snug.  Raisin had her sweater on and I had a big thick robe.

Jim was up first and started coffee. I suggested starting the generator but he decided to test the Mr Heater that my Dad loaned us. What a great idea. It really took the chill out and no one had to unzip the curtain and go outside. It also has a nice warm glow…


We can use this for an hour or so before bed and first thing in the morning…..unless it is so cold that we have to use the generator and electric heater.

Lake George gave us a “hobby horse” ride, but it was not uncomfortable.

A Dollar More looks like it has it’s own shining star……but it’s really just the sun.


We stopped for fuel at the Georgetown Marina. This Pelican kept a close eye on us….probably hoping we’d toss it a fish.

A late lunch at Shrimp R Us in Welaka and then we were on our way to Murphy’s Creek for our anchorage for the night. I like these late lunches….means I don’t have to fix a big supper. We’ll find something to snack on or fix cereal.

Sun is going down and the air is getting cooler. We’ve been invited for a movie and popcorn on A Dollar More with Larry and Diane.  Then we’ll have a few minutes in front of Mr Heater and off to bed.
