"I can't wait to get her out of the creek" - HAB

The Ardelle needs a tiller!

The Ardelle is grounded for now...but will be sailing soon. Nice shot! Thank you Dan.

The Ardelle is picture perfect ... but we think it is too hot for the artists today.

Yes, there is a lot more work to be done yet.

The Ardelle awaits her rigging and is in the mud for right now.

It is about 100 degrees in the shade today so the crew is stopping early but the momentum is building to get the Ardelle out of the creek and out sailing. Every day, the first thing Harold says is "I can't WAIT to get her out of the creek." He does not like to see such a vessel tied to the dock...and the Ardelle is chomping at the bit to get going. It is like we are almost at the summit but the work is just not quite done. Lots more to do, lets hope the heat wave passes soon.

This is a great vantage point at the time of the launch

We can't get enough of this!
