2013 Lake Erie Sailing Trip - Day 12

Day 12 – Cleveland

As it was to be another scorcher, we decided to spend a second day in Cleveland, taking advantage of the free second night the marina offered.  I used the car to do some beer shopping and fill up the boat’s propane tanks, then returned the car, got a ride back to the marina and spent the rest of the day in the pool with the kids.  This is the third time we have stayed at this marina, and every time it has been well over 30 degrees outside.

In the afternoon, we gave the boat a huge scrub down, which took two hours and cost me about two gallons of sweat, but after that Bella Blue was shining and beautiful once again.  This was the first time on the trip we had cleaned her so she was well overdue.

In the evening we sat out in the cockpit, watched all the racing boats going out for the weekly regatta, then retired to the air conditioned comfort of the cabin, watched a movie, then called it a night.
