AFTER THE GALE
April 7, 2012
The storm is gone and today appears to be a ten plus in the making. The harbor had a fairly high wind driven water level yesterday which almost submerged some docks. The clouds parted late in the day and many folks came out to sit on the lobby chairs in the sun.
The motor vessel next to us is crewed by a retired Navy veteran and his wife. He learned that I walked about three miles yesterday to get some cornbread mix for dinner. They left early this morning before we awoke. I found a package on deck with cornbread mix and a boat card. That's the way it is in the cruising community. It is not unusual to see a usable boat gizmo in the laundry room with a "free" note attached.
We will spend the day enjoying the crisp, clear day and perhaps go to the farmers market just a block away. Oh yeah, I will be face down in the engine compartment for a while. Scurv will lobby both of us for frequent trips ashore.
