October 12, 2012  Day 154   Green Turtle Bay         Total miles to date:  3100.33

Late last night we realized we had no water – at least no water was coming out of the faucet.  Bill made a quick trip to the engine room and unfortunately found water there. An improper connection to a water line had come apart. We quickly turned off the water connections and let the bilge pump take care of most of it.  So…. Bill went to a hardware store today to buy the necessary fittings, and was able to take care of it.  Another unplanned event – but these things happen sometimes!

This afternoon, Loopers Champs III, Blarney Castle, and Fandango, arrived at Green Turtle Bay.  Almost all of the other Loopers have left and are headed south. 

We got together with Don and Bernie on Snow Cat for appetizers and talked until almost 8pm. We had a great time visiting with them! It was a nice relaxing way to end a very busy day.

Tomorrow we will leave Green Turtle Bay after having been here for two weeks.  This was an excellent location to rest, have our grandchildren visit, take side trips, visit with many other Loopers, and enjoy great restaurants.  We made good memories here!

Today was another landmark – we have been on the Loop for exactly five months. It is hard to believe how quickly the days and weeks go by and that we have traveled over 3000 miles since we left Yorktown, Virginia.  We continue to enjoy each day – even the ones when unexpected plumbing problems happen just before bedtime.
