Oh the joys of youth!
03 January 2010 | New Plymouth, GTC
Not too bad!
The strong north winds have declined, and the harbour is flat and quiet.
Anne-Marie is anxious to head out and continue our sailing adventure south to explore new islands and check-out new restaurants and stores.....
The problem is that the Atlantic Ocean is still running 10'-14' rolling waves, and we'll be travelling over 12' of water, and our keel is 6' below us.....so much to her significant frustration we will stay in the harbour until the ocean calms down and we can make a safe passage south.
Anne-Marie has decided that there are too many "oldies" in the Bahamas, the food is too fried, and there is nothing to do...... long walks on deserted beaches searching for whale wax and shells have started to piss her off!
It's 9am on a quiet Sunday, Louise is polishing the stainless steel life lines, and I've enjoyed a soft-boiled egg for breakfast.
If the wind stays in the west, we should be able to leave tomorrow...
Lots of fun!
