Ready to leave?
Marcus changing the Diesel filter
Last service is the Diesel filter in our bedroom. We do sleep on the tanks. Unfortunately you can smell a little sometimes.
I was running around all day trying to get all parts Marcus needs for his further constructions. Finally I found the oak wood he needed - but no one to cut it. The big electric saw they have in the homedepot is not strong enough! So I had to cut it manually with a saw they provide just behind the cashiers. Puh. But I just cut it in half, we will have to cut the rest here, cause I don't know the sizes that Marcus needs.
And I got my sewing machine. Now I can fix some things and sew some more water resistant bags with the reminder of the cloth which we used for the sunsail.
Shopping in Gran Canaria
Marcus' new necklace
Alita slowly getting ready
Day of filling up the proviant
Here you see some of the stuff, already stored away.
Now we're at the sailor's bar for breakfast and internet. They have a wonderful hot chocolate here. It's so rich that the spoon can stand in the cup! Yummy.
The weather is ok, but very windy. Would be great for sailing but is also great to get air into the boat. Enough relaxation for now, back to work.
Couple hours later
Picking up our freight from the airport
We arrived at Alita
Below you see our luggage in front of Alita at the point of arrival. Amongst it my red bag from Deutscher Sparkassenverlag, a gift from my customer. Have a great night.
So now the time has come. House is empty, car is sold, family and friends have said good bye in a wonderful party at Cafe Neuhausen last night. And of course my last Ballett class yesterday with Thiery. Oh how much I will miss all that. But now we're looking forwad to the trip of our life. It'a hard to leave my home after all those years living there, but our new, floating home is worth the change. We have to thank our families and friends for all the support, without which this whole thong would be a lot more complicated. I especially want to thank my dear brother for taking care of all my stuff and our uncle. Meanwhile Alita is soo much looking forward to getting company again. We're at the airport now waiting for the flight. Now there's no way back:-) The last week has been hard, very short time for the trip preparation. Yet all worked out in the end and I still got to say good bye to all my friends and go to my dance classes and Salsa. Now I have to dance on the boat. Pole dancing? :-) So, good bye Germany, see you soon! Michaela
