It was one tough year getting the “Taking Time” in for Dad and Donna. Shortly after their 30′ Catalina was put on their slip in Scituate Harbor it was struck by lightning. Many other boats on the slip were also struck by lightning. The damage in the mast and all the electrical work took nearly 8 weeks to fix, most of the season around here. Finally, they were on their way to their annual month long cruise. Usually they like to hit all the Islands; Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island and of course the coast of Maine. A week or so into the trip Irene rolled in. After they anchored the Taking Time down in Greenwich, Rhode Island, Donna packed clothes in the BooLoo Bag and they headed a shore for an interesting night in a “pinch” of a hotel. Dad and Donna are always raving about their BooLoo Bag when they travel on the boat, they take it everywhere! Once Irene passed, the sky opened up and they sailed over to Block Island and sent in these pictures. Thanks Dad and Donna! The “Taking Time” sailboat BooLoo Bag is in the works for our next run of graphic designs.
