Neighbor "Wilson" and Dock Drama

We've grown kinda attached to our dockmates.  One man, we have named "Wilson" for blog purposes, has been particularly endearing.  He offers pearls of wisdom on a daily basis.  He owns a 27' sailboat in the slip next to us.  He is all the crusty mirth one would hope for in a neighbor!  Wilson loans us all kinds of stuff: lines, ladders, polish, twine, tools. 

He has even taken up our battle with the FINCHES!  Can you believe it!?!  The finches made a new nest in our sail!!!!!  This would be the 3rd nest!  Count them. Three.

We're afraid we've created a monster.  Are they like homing pigeons?  I think it is time to get the sparkly used car saleman lot flags!  What did you call them, Captain V?


  1. How about a boat mascot - of the feline variety?
    And call him "Pennant"!

  2. haha! I guess now we know why all the other boats look like used car lots! You could always get one of those scary looking owls... ;-)

  3. Hi Lauren!

    Thanks for visiting me and leading me here. I know nothing about sailing, so that will be fun to follow along with you.
