Still too far north
15 October 2009 | Rain soaked Annapolis
If I have to wear socks, I am too far north.
Yesterday Martin stopped by to check out the boat (and me) as we've never met. By way of initiation I had him help me pick up the anchor and we went over to the fuel dock to top off the tank (53 gallons) and get some water.
We got along just fine and I believe he will be great crew for our offshore passage to Bermuda.
Instead of going back out and anchor, I got a mooring for a days thinking that the weather was supposed to suck for the weekend. I am moored right off the boat show. For those of you watching at home on live feed - I am in the middle on the left hand side of your screen.
Well, let me tell you, it started getting cold last night, the wind came up and it started raining and has not let up all day. I have WOOL socks and my arctic clothes on....Glad I took the mooring.
Too bad for the PB show. Not a lot of movement over there.
Bob and Sue H. - All the big ocean trawlers are here.... NICE!
I guess if I want to get these socks off, I'll have to keep moving south.
