Tuesday 25th September 2012

Today we had to go back to Baltimore, to pick up the chain and anchors.
I really did not want to go at all, I hate the place and the drive there is so boring and long.
I had decided to not go, until Tom said we could have the truck all day and night, and the Captain, said we can do some more looking around for a rug, and get the curtain material.
Well he had me, I was in the truck like a flash.
So after picking up the chain and anchors which are looking all shiny and pretty, we go off, rug hunting, oh by the way it's a floor mat, they call them rugs over here.
I am armed with a few addresses for carpet stores, but as we are driving there we spot one and pull in there to have a look, they don't have the size we need, which of cause is not a regular size but this guy says why don't you try Ollie's, well we had never heard of them, so we get the address, and off we go.
What a find this place was, it's a shop that sells off all discontinued stuff and things, we not only managed to get a rug, but also a quilt for the V berth, at a very cheap price, and they both look great.
So very happy with ourselves, we finally get to the material warehouse, and pick out the curtain, this is the 2nd visit here, and we had already worked out what we were going to buy, but yeah it turned out quite different but we now have a very nice roll of navy and gold stripe material, and a roll of backing material, that the Captain thinks I can turn into these professional curtains, me am very worried, I can see a lot of google  research happening here.
Well tomorrow is another day.
