Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - We left Grand Mariner Marina on a lovely sunny day going across Mobile Bay to Eastern Shore Marina, Fairhope. We arrived at 10:00 am and got diesel before proceeding to our slip. We had to go in bow first because the water level was too shallow on the inside dock. Our 50’ power cord was not quite long enough due to the tides, so they found an extra one and lent it to us. We need to get some work done on both engines because of an oil leak. Dewl, the mechanic was tied up for the day, so we took the courtesy car into town, shopped and took the scenic route stopping at a pier for lunch.
Wednesday, January 4, 2017 - I started the day off with doing some laundry - sheets and towels. We finally saw Dewl at 11:00 am. With a helper, they both worked on the port engine until 5:30 pm and had the job completed. We could now leave early the next morning. We took the courtesy car to Sunset Pointe for supper.
