Where’s Jim??

While Deb was off having fun in Seville, I needed to make an unscheduled trip home to California in order to deal with “real life” issues. 

One of those issues is home maintenance…

Such fun!  Not only deck work, but multiple kitchen appliances decided to die on our tenants. Unbelievably, Deb entrusted me with picking out replacements!!

It has not been all work and no play. I managed to escape the house for the weekend and fly down to “sunny, warm” San Deigo for a weekend of sailing in the SDYC Yachting Cup. 

Debbie in Seville

I know that we’ve been quiet lately.  Real life has intruded into our “plans” and things have been busy lately. 

Deb has it pretty good at this point though and is enjoying the season opening fair in Seville. Horses, Bullfights, Dancing, and Food!  Deb is in her own personal slice of heaven. 

Projects Continue

It’s painting time around here.  Just refinished the carbon spinnaker pole – very happy – it looks brand new!  And, now we are moving on to the deck where the paint is getting a bit thin these days.

I’m doing all the prep work, and we are having the yard here do the actual painting.

Badalona Days

It’s difficult to make boat projects sound all that exciting.  And to be entirely truthful there has not been much else that has been going on with us lately.  We are really happy to see the results of our efforts, but I don’t think that will translate into a very interesting blog post.  Our list is getting smaller, and that’s a good thing.

So, just to provide some “proof of life”, here are some random pictures that we’ve taken over the last few weeks.


Some photos to provide an idea of the area that we’ve been staying in while here near Barcelona, Spain.
