Ship shape and bad shape
06 July 2012 | Lake Montauk
Peggy, weather: great
We had a great motor sail from Fire Island inlet to Montauk. 6:am to 6pm. Our friends Flori and Claudio are sailing with us on their boat a 42 foot Kantor. They came in last night to the boat basin. Bob's back was hurting so I volunteered to "hop off" our boat and help them tie up. When I maneuvered myself over the bow pulpit the dock was much lower and I wound up falling onto a concrete sidewalk. Hurt my left hip, left elbow, and tbe back of my head.
Today was not a good day. Besides being achy, queasy in the morning, fly bitten(When I questioned Bob about flies in the ocean. He said, "Oh the north wind is blowing them from the shore to our boat.") and sleepy from the anti-seasickness medication, Bob was in a bad state with his back. He took a Flexeril which made him groggy.(Not good having a groggy captain in the ocean.) So we alternated napping in the cockpit for the whole 12 hour trip. But we made it.
