Happy Equinox Day!!

Yes, a day in our honor!! Actually, one of two, but the vernal equinox is my favorite, since it is the first day of spring, and the whole spring and summer are now on the horizon!! On March 20, 2009, at precisely 7:44 A.M. EDT, the Sun crossed directly over the Earth's equator. Because the sun is positioned above the equator, day and night are about equal in length all over the world during the equinoxes. The next equinox will occur on September 22 at 5:18 P.M. EDT. You can be sure there will be a party!!

Since the torrential rains of last Wednesday and Thursday, the weather has been the more typical breezy, sunny, and 70s. We've spent the past few days scuba diving, snorkeling for lobster, hanging by the pool or doing boat projects. We changed out the big General Ecology water system filter, cleaned and polished more of the metalwork, and took care of the usual feeding, petting and grooming of the boat. Gotta show her the love! Which we do!!
