Back in Burnham

Yes, Scott and Sue and Gracie the cat are back in their slip in Burnham Harbor, Chicago...for the last time. This summer we are NOT taking any extended cruises as we did last summer and instead we are enjoying the harbor and living downtown Chicago in the Museum Campus.

We've had several fine day sails already including a 'breakfast sail' where we anchor by Oak Street and make a big breakfast while watching the rest of the world go to work. Nice.

The Cubs have dominated much of our worry time of course. We enjoy listening to Ron Santo and Pat Hughes on the radio. We've added a 'WIN' flag to our inventory to hoist up the flag halyard when the Cubs win which has been often lately!

We are also accelerating our work in getting Enee ready for the big trip to the east coast. Water is the biggest problem right now. Our tank is only 10 gallons! I might be able to double that but that's probably about it. This is NOT enough for ultimate cruising but will just have to get us down the east coast.
