Chanty is now in the water. I have been working on the bright work a bit, already have 5 layers on the hand holds on top. This past week has mostly been organizing the boat again, getting stuff in storage and getting settled in my new marina. I discovered a really nice bike path close by that goes right to the beach while I was geocaching the other day. TONS of geocaches here in LA. I can see those will bring me a lot of new places. Took a ride to work in the car...it took 45 minutes to go 8 miles. Rode my bike to work, just to try it out...took me an hour, I really thought it would take less time since half of the way is no stops on that bike trail. Don't think I will be making it a habit. Besides the ride back is murder...against the wind from the ocean. And holy smokes...don't get in the way of those professional bikers...they mean business. I was so exhausted by the time I got home, can't imagine doing that after a 12 hour night shift. Tomorrow is my official first day of work. This week will be just a bunch of orientation stuff. After that, I will be starting back into a routine.
