Afternoon Thunderstorms

08 July 2008 | Oriental Harbor

We've been having nearly daily (or nightly) thunderstorms. They build up over a long time, hit slowly, then build up to huge downpours. The one this afternoon hit shortly after I returned from a shore excursion. The dogs must have been frightened because they jumped down into the cabin by themselves (now they can do that and don't need my help, for better or for worse). It was blowing so hard the boat was swinging around the anchor and I came pretty close to the nice couple from Titusville. Again, the boat remained remarkably dry in spite of the dounpour. The storm is over now, but the winds are still pretty high and the dogs are hanging out below with me. Looking back, it probably was a very good idea to stay here. I might very well have made it to Norfolk, but if I got caught in one of these storms on the open water, it wouldn't be fun. Plus, I'm getting things done with the extra time I have ( in a relative cruisor sort of way).

Keith is a 40 something year old Family Law Attorney from Tucson, Arizona who somehow managed to develop a love of sailboat cruising and adventure in spite of growing up in the desert. This blog used to be about how I took breaks from a successful career in law to become a coastal cruising sailor. [...]
