In June, we have a guest on our SAILOR MOON: My aunt Regina visits us for two days. She was never in Varel until now, and we really enjoy showing her around. Regina has never slept on a boat before, and after she climbs up the ladder for the first time and sees her berth, she becomes really quiet. But then she settles in on our boat really well and sleeps soundly from the first night onwards. During the day Jaqueline and I work on our furniture while Regina explores the city, and in the evenings we show her the harbour and the restaurants. After two days her adventure trip is over and she flies back to Austria, leaving behind a new entry in our guestbook.

The next day, new guests arrive: My brother Ma quickly drove the 110 km from Vienna to Varel, this time together with his girlfriend Vicky and our brother Martin. They don’t explore much but work a lot, which is a big help for us. Ma works on our electric wiring, Martin saws wood and vicky paints our ceiling.In the evenings we have several barbecues, sometimes in the yard, sometimes together with other sailors. Of course we also eat a lot of fish (thank you M+W!).

Thanks to our help we accomplish a lot and we are confident that we will finish in June. Tomorrow our gas system will get checked, so maybe we will be able to use our oven soon – Jaqueline bought already a cake pan.

We still are fine, we are already friends with a lot of the other sailors of Varel and we get a lot of advice. Jaqueline really did a great job, she already is a master at her jig saw and I’m really proud of her and her stamina. Nevertheless we are looking forward to our departure, we don’t want to live in the shipyard forever. Soon we want to put our boat back into the water, because next week we are expecting new guests – this time Jaqueline’s family, who will bring a lot of our stuff which needs to be stored somewhere.
