Today a part for the engine arrived.  It doesn't fit so we are having problems with the man.

We did school today.  I like 5th grade.

This evening, Mr. Bill and Mrs. Beverly, who we saw in Atlantic Highlands on 6/25/08, drove down and took us to dinner at the Lobster House.  The food was very good.  I am happy.©

For the last week, we have been at Utsch's Marina in Cape May, NJ.  We have done a lot of things this week.  We finally got the engine part, but then we couldn't leave because of bad weather.  We did some school and hanging out, but we did some other things too.  Sometimes Chris and I played in the dirt.  We had fun doing that. One day, we made a long walk to town.  We saw some old houses.  We also went to the beach.  Chris and I made a walled city of sand.  I made a tough front wall.  It was high and thick.  It was a lot of fun.

Everyday, I went to the office and pet the marina's cat Jesibell.  They have another cat, Bubba, but he is shy and nippy.  He always runs.  Jesibell is brownish gray.  She is so cute and sweet.  I would pick her up and put her in my lap and she would stay and let me pet her all day.

This past weekend, Grandma came.  She brought the new book in the Inheritance Cycle, Brisingr, for Chris.  Now all he does is read!  It's so annoying.

On the first day, Mom and Grandma shopped all day, but day 2 with Grandma was different.  Mom and Dad went to dinner, so Grandma stayed home with us.  We had knishes for dinner and a pomegranate for dessert.  It was good.  What we did that night was awesome.  We watched Star Wars III.  It wasn't scary.  I don't know why it is rated PG-13.  She also brought some cool rocks.  I like rocks.

This morning we left the marina and anchored in the harbor.  We are leaving very early in the morning for the Chesapeake Bay.  Tonight we watched Cheaper by the Dozen.  It is a good movie.  I am happy.©

Today we left early and quickly motor-sailed all day into the Bohemia River off the Chesapeake Bay.  We went around Cape May, up the Delaware Bay, through the C&D Canal, and into the Chesapeake.  The sail was a very nice one and the scenery was nice too.  It was a long, yet calm sail and we had the current with us the whole time which made us go faster.

We did a bit of boring school along the way.  I am
