Catching Up

We certainly have a lot of catching up to do!
On Friday 6/22 we motored Rode Trip from Newburyport to Portsmouth. It was a sunny, calm day and we made certain to log our four hour trip. Ahhh, Portsmouth! We moored Rode Trip in the Piscataqua River just off of Pierce Island; with much thanks to Mike for providing this familiar spot. We readied Rode Trip for her ‘Bon Voyage’ debut and continued to unpack.

Our next visitors came on Friday afternoon; good friends, Brian and Jen, who traveled from PA. Brian and Jen had quite the morning; they had driven to the top of Mt. Washington! We welcomed them aboard and gave a tour. They shared some Mt. Washington history with us. We then left Rode Trip for the night and returned to Amesbury with Brian and Jen. We had a fabulous meal at The Ale House and the four of us did our own catching up.

Later on Friday evening Sally, Steve, and Michele arrived in Amesbury. We extended our stay at The Ale House to join them for dinner, we of course had a liquid dessert.

On Saturday 6/23 we had many loose ends to tie in Amesbury before the Bon Voyage party could begin. Thanks to Brian, Jen, Steve, Sally, and Michele for helping tremendously!
