This One's for King Castleberry!

We had a great weekend at the boat. We didn't get to go sailing but we enjoyed the weekend anyway.

On Friday night we drove over to Channel Marker, our friends Debbie and Larry got married and we had a great time. It was good to see all of our friends and we can't wait to get back over there with our boat for a longer visit.

On Saturday night Patrick cooked a great dinner for everyone - steaks, boiled shrimp with corn on the cob and potatoes. What a feast! Everyone had a great time - plenty of good food, drink and conversation!

The big topic of conversation at the marina this weekend is the pending demolition of our pier. We all are wondering how much time we have left there and everyone is pretty much looking around at other marinas and making plans to move. We are all sad to break up our little group. We really will miss having everyone around. We've made such good friendships there at Blue Dolphin. We decided to move to Watergate Yachting Center and will probably go in the next month or so.

Troy has really been improving lately. It's great to see him becoming more and more active and doing more things. He still has trouble with nausea sometimes after he eats but he is learning how to deal with that and hopefully it will get better with time. He has a couple of doctor appointments this week. The big one is seeing the oncologist on Tuesday. We will finally find out whether he has to do another week of chemo. We are optimistic that he won't because the tumor board met a couple of weeks ago and we think we would have heard from Dr. Jac already if they thought he should have another round. We are just praying that he wont need anymore chemo and that he can just continue to heal and get back to a "normal" life.

On July 28th there will be a full moon and the Delta Aquarids Meteor Shower. We are hoping to sail to Double Bayou leaving Friday afternoon. We're trying to get other boats to sail over with us. Stay tuned for more info.

Thanks for the post. I have been looking forward to seeing some new stuff.

After talking this weekend about the inpending doom of Blue dolphin I have been very upset. I am trying to decide where I want to go. It will be between 3 Marinas. Watergate, Legend Point or back to Seabrook.

You guys take it easy. I will be back again this weekend. I will see you then. King
