Since the moment we pulled into this slip we knew that we were dealing with some grumpy old men. Not a one of the 'locals' stopped to say hello or ask where we were from. Even when I would go out of my way to say hello they would barely give me a nod. It was fairly obvious that they didn't like our presence on this dock which is primarily big powerboats.
Today I received a call from the harbor office, one of the grumpy old men had complained that our kids were swimming in the water. Um, yah....has he looked at this water??? Talk about nasty! In fact, Loren had fallen in yesterday while playing around on the dinghy with his Dad. It was a fun moment that had all three boys absolutely in stitches....a rare moment to be sure. To have it tainted by a dorky old fart really ticks me off. I guess I'm glad we won't be staying here for an extended period of time.
