Ex-hurricane Ida came and went. We felt her majestic but waning presence. We battened down the hatches, tripled the lines and waited out the tempest. Heavy rain accompanied by strong north winds on the port quarter buffeted our old girl. She is one tough cookie! Listening to the banshee howls and feeling the slight rocking motion, we remained safely sheltered. Mark slept, I didn’t!
Unfortunately, we were unable to sail today as the winds were still blowing strongly and seas a little nasty.
But, there is always a silver lining. We put the cooler temperature and sunny weather to good use…
Oh, and if you are wondering about the workload, Mark’s t-shirt says it all.
Such is Life!

From a lock down to a batten down.
I can see the problem with the head straight away. Mark’s sitting in the wrong spot. No wonder there are leaks. Who should I invoice?
I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time. You are worth every scent!
Mark is living the dream! Good you are secure. John and Tina
Love the t shirt
Stay safe and enjoy
We were really anxious having heard you were in Ida’s vicinity.
Good you are safe and sound.
Hope your repairs work!
Safe sailing 💕
Not so sure about the forehead head, yet!!! But he has had success with other tasks. I am cracking that whip🤣
Glad you’re both ok following the storm. What a welcome for you!! Have fun
Fun is rising with the humidity lowering
