She is in.... and now running

Jon and Victor have been working on the engine for two days now. We brought it to the boat yesterday and began getting all hoses and gaskets ready to drop her in. The drop-in went fine with the help of Tyrone and a local boy. Jon did notice we were short one gasket so had to work around it. With some luck she should be running later today.
Once again we were invited to a few functions on the Island. Jan came over and drove me to the beach to do a little walking with the dogs and then we sat on her porch and played scrabble. Later on we were invited for Corned beef and cabbage at Jeff and Lana's house which ended up being a great evening of chit chat with more homeowners from the island. I love some of the vehicles that they drive around here and of course they drive on the left side of the road here.
Dorcus left this morning to head back to her place in Florida but before leaving she brought us a "Kindness package" which consisted of some of our favorite items from Newman's Own products, plus an awesome Bracelet that she had made for me (If you like it I am taking orders for her). We hope our paths meet again on a beach somewhere because it seems already as we have known her forever and it would be way to cool to meet again.
Well since I have started to write this entree in the blog Jon has managed to get the engine running so I think we will be drinking Champagne tonight (which was sent to us by our three kids). ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

As we were talking to Jeff on the dock a huge yacht pulled up next to us and we found out that it is Jack Nicklaus's, then a jet came in so this should be interesting. He is a big bonefisherman so he comes to the Berry's a lot we were told.

Congratulations on the engine restart. I suppose some would say things happen for a reason. I think maybe you made the best of the situation. The extra time there gave you the opportunity to make closer friendships.

That's what it's all about.Jon is loving every moment. One of the guys here at the marina exchanged some Sim CD's with Jon for a CD of some guy's that come to the townhouse across from us and it ended up being someone very popular "Big and Rich", Jill will get a kick out of that one.
