I got to the laundry room around 6:45 am and was lucky to get a machine. It had just stopped and a staff person came in, tossed the clothes into a dryer, they weren’t hers, and my first load was in. It was a bit of a dance after that. A couple from Drummondville QC, Louise and Sylvain, arrived followed by a fellow desperate to get bedding and towels done before noon. They were catching a flight home and had only this morning to get the laundry done for people arriving to the boat this afternoon. I let him do his first load after mine finished, it was ok with Louise who really was next in line. Of course when my first load was done neither dryer was free. So on it went until 11:30. There is a nice patio with chairs and tables outside the laundry so Louise and I chatted while waiting along with yet another group from a large catamaran trying to get their towels done before flights home tomorrow.
Meanwhile, since we had shore power, Bob vacuumed the boat and bilge and cleaned the head while I was on laundry duty – I think he got the short end of the stick. Afternoon chores included a visit to the liquor store, they had very good prices for wine, and lunch again at the Grand Isle. We typically end up not having dinner when we eat out for lunch.
The Marina hosted a Happy Hour from 5:30 – 6:30 with punch and some finger food so that was dinner. Good thing we weren’t very hungry as there wasn’t much food left by the time we hit the serving area, we should have got into line sooner.
