Sailing with Nine of Cups
A patch of blue and then...
02 May 2011 | Moored in Opua, Bay of Islands, NZ
finally, some sunshine! The night was windy and rainy once again with gale warnings still in effect. When we first awoke, it was foggy and misty and we had to wear our foul weather gear ashore to keep from getting soaked. By around 2PM however, the wind calmed, the sky cleared and the sun shone.

Marcie managed quite a bit on the bimini and estimates just another two days till fitting and hopefully completion. David finished up his current work project at Ted's shed. We popped into the little Opua General Store for an ice cream...all work and no play, etc! Back to the boat with the sunshine, David prepped the forestay for removal when we haul out tomorrow while Marcie worked on cleaning out lockers, wiping them down with vinegar and airing out the contents. We hauled the dink and were in the for the night by 6pm.

Short days, but spirits rise when the sun comes out.
