Today we took Charlie in the dinghy and meandered down Sisters Creek for a couple of miles to Sombrero Beach.. We pulled the dinghy into the shallow water in a little cove. There was a palm tree for shade and a beautiful view to enjoy. Charlie got to run a bit and got thoroughlyl coated with sand. He didn't seem too impressed with the sand or the water. We stayed for a few hours, and when we got back to the big boat, Charlie had to have a shower/bath.
Bill took Jim David's suggestion and was able to clean the bottom of the dinghy which had gotten nasty from sitting in the water for three weeks.
