Fairhaven - Day's 7 & 8 -Wed -Thur
20 May 2010
Good thing we ducked for cover... 'cause we really got blasted! We pulled anchor from our favorite coffee spot and headed into the Marina. Just got in when WHAM! Big wind..(.really big wind) came right in the habor...straight down the carberator throat, so-to-speak, and nailed us up against the dock. I thought it was going to lift us up and put us on it! We got 60 - 65 knot winds direct broadside...our joke was me hollering "rails under!"...and we're still at the dock!
Okay, so the excitement is over...we're in and safe...still breezy out so we elected to stay one more day (fellow cruisers are familure with that thinking -HA!). Did something to sprain my knee...not good for chief anchor puller and deck slave. I wrapped some string around it, a little duck tape...good as new...I'll be okay...don't worry about me.
Internet fail...that was the words for yesterday. Our new (and very temporary spot) in the marina has something wrong with it and we can't get our BBX Internet thing...some kind of interference caused by some kind of electronics in some kind of boats around us..thank god we're not going to be here too long!
Tomorrow, back out on the hook...and Oh...sorry about pictures...still working on that...having to use this temporry Internet connection and we haven't de-scrambled our pics yet (sorry Willow)...soon though...trust me.
'Nuff for now...have to get back into the dock combat zone. The coast gaurd just rescued a 38 foot sailboat, evidently they found it out wandering about in the bay...either got out of it's cage or off it's lease...somebody's very lucky.
Ray out ...more later.
