Prefab Off Grid Modern House : Watt's Up?

Solar panels tilted to catch the *low* winter sun, not the *high* summer sun.
Curiously, it was cloudy but sunny. That's not what was really curious. What was curious was that the battery bank percentage would just not rise as expected. Odd...

We realized: Oh. Time to alter the angle of the solar panels to better catch the now higher position of the sun. But still, something is off. Hmmmm...

We will monitor how the battery bank is performing more closely over the next week or two.

In the meantime, this is the season of Cousin Time, and Pirates.
"We are playing I Am A Pirate Boarding A Merchant Ship!"
Pirate herd.

We go back, and forth, and back... from the off grid prefab house to the bay, from the bay to the off grid prefab house.

Summer office meeting. Sure beats a conference call!
One thing I've found interesting is that, after a lifetime on the water, and now riding so much these past few years, is how my riding brings so much to the water!

I have never had an easier time climbing into a boat from the water (thank you, no longer using mounting blocks but mane to climb onto my horse).

When I go out on a kayak or paddle board, like riding I now "find my seat" vs. shakily unbalanced / off the board.

Turning? Heck ya, I twist vs. lean into the turn, thereby not capsizing the paddle board.

And when the wind hits, I "lean to lope" straight through it, paddling through the water in wind now easy. THANK YOU Carey and Zena!!!
"So are you saying I help you kayak?!?" Yep.

In the meantime, the Pirates are also playing We Are Lemonade Capitalists whose customers include unsuspecting German tourists... ; )
(It is helping him cool off in this Virginia heat.)

...and BATMAN.
...Y'all stay cool in this heat!
I'll be reporting back on battery banks, prefab house kit projects, and more next week.
