Rainy Days and Mondays always get me down

Actually its Saturday. Last night it started to rain and has continued since. The forecast is for several more days of rain as a slow moving front passes. Not much fun. Going on shore just means spending money to sit in a restaurant. Wind has been up and down. When up, not terribly comfortable on Reboot.

Then he cuddles and falls asleep. I have been putting gel in his eyes to clear a minor infection. It must be helping. He just quietly lays on his back and lets me do it. Fair winds and following seas 🙂

Since Huku-Hiva is a small island there is not a heck if a lot to do. I have compensated by helping Kevin with various small projects. Today we went up to the wood shop he used to own and built bookshelves and a n
