Mayhem, I think, is the best word
04 December 2009 | Marmaris, Turkey
Yes...I think that mayhem is the best way to describe it. I can't quite remember everything else, but I do remember that in the morning of Wednesday, December 2, 2009 we woke up a mile or so from our anchorage. We knew that we would be getting some weather soon, so we hurried back to anchorage.
But, when that weather came, we were getting the stink eye from a neighboring boat so we decided to move. That was a bad decision. We moved, but we ran aground. (Not hard, but our depth meter read 0.) Then we motored around for awhile and tried to set the anchor a few more times. We never drug, but we were always either too close to our neighbor or we were too close to a nearby rock. We eventually found the right anchoring spot, and settled down to a nice evening of anxiety and nervousness. The next morning bore no signs of the previous day's storm.
We spent that morning (yesterday) assessing the damage from the day before. It turns out; we lost a dinghy motor cover, snapped the Wi-Fi antenna, and almost lost the dinghy. (We ended up putting the dinghy partway into the cockpit to keep it from flipping in the wind.) But besides breaking stuff, we were rather subdued that day.
Today dawned bright and sunny. But it soon clouded over and from our weather books, we are expecting rain soon (maybe tomorrow). It has been nice here, whatever the weather.
Whether the weather be cold or whether the weather be hot;
Whether the weather be fine or whether the weather be not;
Whatever the weather, we'll weather the weather;
Whether we like it or not.
