After You - Paint!

I have a coat on the bottom, sanded. I've already done the ceiling in the cabin and now the port wall and starboard face -- white only. Wanted to get as much paint on since we're going up north for a few days and I wanted to let it dry and cure for as long as possible.

It's looking more and more like I'll be dropping it back on it's head after this side is done. First, to let this side dry and cure as much as possible, as well as getting another coat on the bottom. I know I can paint sides while they're upright, but I figure the more surfaces I can paint flat, the better.

It looked like rain when we started, but there were storms all over the cities, so we figured we might slip between them. Rained for a bit up by Phalen, but the wind was the scary part. We got hit with a cloud of sand downtown which put grit in everyone's mouths. NavyDave said a branch dropped behind us near Phalen, as well.

We ended at Common Roots and I have to say we might not be going there again for a while. No more bagels in the evening, and it looks like they're trying to go more upscale. Now that Leaning Tower and many other places have Surly, we'll find a new Uptown destination.
