a quick trip, now it’s back to the mainland

I hopped on the boat yesterday, and made it over the island to see that many of the construction projects we have going on the house are in full swing. New (old) doors, new windows, and a little bit of board and plaster work are currently in process!!!

I did visit with the neighbors for a bit, and painted some trim going up the stairwell. And, now I am getting ready to hop back on the boat and take a leisurely drive down the coast hitting a few antique shops along the way–with a definite stop at the Montsweag Flea Market!

Speaking of corkscrew hunting, I missed out on the Hootch Owl that ended yesterday… I was short a couple hundred in my snipe bid. Oh well, hopefully on the next one.

Who knows, maybe there will be a similar corkscrew rarity discovered on my trip back down the coast…
