My main achievement today was to update this site. I added a “Menu.” It sounds simple, but it took me a while to understand how WordPress works.
I did it because the blog that was documenting my travels with Antares is evolving into something that resembles more a journal; which I need to have. And since now I am no longer blogging in my old-job’s blog, I also wanted to have a place where I can write about the work I do. The menu lets the reader choose between posts related to sailing (most of them now), posts related to work (none for now), and others. I also updated the “about.” There is an “about Antares” (which comes from the first post in the original blog), and an updated “about me.”
While working on the site I was thinking about other sailing Blogs I follow. By “follow,” I mean blogs for which I have developed a certain addiction. Everyday I’m checking if there are new posts and where there are none, which happens often, I am disappointed. One of those blogs — really a Journal — is Webb Chiles’s. If you haven’t, check it out.
We invited a couple to have dinner with us tonight, somewhere in the neighborhood. We can’t entertain yet, but they will stop by the apartment for an aperitif. I need to buy some sparkling wine and put it in the fridge. Then I’ll head to one of the local bars and have a well deserved G&T.
The picture today is random; not related to this short post: the view of the port here in Beirut. Everyday massive cargos of all types come and go.
