Labor Day fog

After a week of classic hot summer weather we woke up to this today:

A heavy dense fog that feels almost like it’s raining.  Kind of refreshing after the achingly toasty past few days.  But this is the day that all of the people in the harbor are heading home to their jobs and the start of school.  I wish for them safe passage and to not do anything dumb during the mass exodus from the harbor.

Meanwhile, those of us who are staying are breathing a sigh of relief.  It’s been an intense summer – business as usual, I hear.  Time to fix up the boat to get through what we hope will be a rainy winter.  Get us out of drought conditions.

Yesterday was a delightful new tradition, a Dogathon to celebrate the vet on the island.  We had a parade of dogs down the forbidden Front Street followed by a party on the ballfield all afternoon.  Austin placed in the dog show for waggiest tail and best costume ( Hawaii Shirt).  It was a great All Day Doggie Date for us.

And about what the imminent future holds for us, as the German expression goes, Ich bin gespannt…
