Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Hustle and bustle everywhere this morning as we prepare to recon our upcoming engagement. Solid maps and early communications give much hope for success. I'll try and make an evening post if we return early enough. The sky is clear but we may be sailing into approaching storms. We are looking to fil...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Another fine morning in Paradise. Loneliness is not an issue here at The Port so 'visits' are nice, but disruptive. There is a heavy work ethic here and the schedule is grueling. Visitors usually don't "work". Most sleep for the first third of their visit. It's that pleasant here. After that they wa...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

I apologize for not posting yesterday but the comfort and happiness of our Visitors to The Port are our highest priority. All of my time was taken from before dawn until too far past dusk, and I woke this morning with a gargantuan headache. It has subsided with my usual regimen of coffee, aspirin, a...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

A stiff breeze and a smooth, eventless journey always signals a successful adventure. Reunions with loved ones and an almost completed list of necessities acquired before a feast and merriment erased most of the aches from the work done this past fortnight. I must have twisted wrong before we left a...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

After living a life of scarcity and prudence, it never ceases to amaze me the amount of precious water that is wasted in a Big City of limitless resources. I feel so guilty about taking a shower with the same amount of water that would keep me alive for a MONTH! I got down to within 12 ounces of wat...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Looking at the view count jump I know there are skallywags reading my posts. Welcome. ;) Activity here started long before Sunup and it looks like you kicked an anthill. Anticipation of Liberty has the Crew amped up (it always does) and there is singing and laughter amongst the frenzied scurry to ac...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

Thank God. There was only a couple dozen bugs to contend with, and sleep wasn't interrupted last night. Hopefully that nightmare is over until this time next year. By then domiciles should be properly sealed after the Winter Closing this fall. I was tightening up the head on a sledgehammer and hit m...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

For the last two days we have been inundated by a small, flying bug that resembles what hatches out when you don't protect flour.Tthey come out just before Sundown (in the hundreds) and persist until midmorning of the next day, when they die out. I hope it doesn't last much longer as it has taken a ...

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

No day at The Port is more treasured than The Sabbath.

God knows I couldn't survive this task without a Day of Rest and Reflection each week.

May you be as blessed as I am to know Him.

Re: Daily Post from The Port Of New Barcelona

A light, cool breeze just after sundown was the most pleasant setting for rest last evening. Satisfaction from another full day of construction fed my appetite and I ate an extra portion of chicken and wild rice soup. I switched the bedding from winter to summer cloth and was vastly more comfortable...
