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!
