Eventually the tinkering seemed to do more damage than good and papa became very frustrated, not that I blame him. And he put Grama in charge of fixing it and that didn’t do any good either the thing was broken. Papa was kinda discouraged and I think he wanted to fix something and have it fixed and there was a list of stuff to do so he took to work on the engine which I never heard anything about so I think it went well…*knocks on wood*! Papa then went to wash down the boat and Grama and I noticed one of the hatches was bowed and water was leaking in. at this Grama and I decided to just get off the boat! We had made a grocery list and were going to head to wallmart! (it seems to be the only big store in the towns we visit) Kathy needed to go aswell as Ruth so we all piled into Kathy’s car and left.
When we returned to the boat nothing was said about the days’ events or what had happened while we were away and I guess Grama and were too nervous to ask lol. But I should head to bed because we depart tomorrow morn at 7am come hell or high water!
