Waiting for the wind to drop!
13 December 2010 | Hopetown on Elbow Cay
Cool and strong winds!
With the wind gusting to 80kph we're hiding in Hopetown harbour getting tossed all over the place! Several neighbours have gone ashore to avoid the seasickness, and Louise is finishing up the stainless steel polishing. I've never seen such a lovely protected harbour so rough with whitecaps and howling wind. If our mooring line let's go, we'll be toast!
Lots of bright sunshine allows the solar panels to fully recharge the batteries, and all of my internet problems have been sorted out, so the current challenge is to find a safe and reasonable way to get our new dinghy from the west coast of Florida to Marsh Harbour..... it would be virtually impossible without internet.
The bilge is dry, the beer is cold and the sun is shining.... all is well!
