Washing Machine

Uh? You say. Picture a front loading washing machine, you know the kind with the little round windo so you can see inside. Now start it and throw in a toy boat and watch it during the wash cycle. That's us right now! The high pressure system to our north couple with a small front are making some damn interesting seas. Every so often we hit a peak of 4 swells all at once....and slam! Then it's mellow for a while, then rinse and repeat. time out. I'm back. For comfort and to make the ride more forfortable, we are heading a little more to the east and, according the the current weather forecast I downloaded a few minutes ago, it looks like this is what we have for the next 24 hours. Rats! Good thing we have lots of leftovers as cooking is out of the question. Once this system passes us by and the high pressure bands widen, we will be back on course in(hopefully) smoother seas. And the wind? It goes from port to starb'd or it's on our nose, so we are motorsailing with 3 reefs in the main and just the staysail centered for stability. At least there have been a couple of small rain showers to wash the salt off the boat and fantasic rainbows. So here we are plowing along at a blazing 2.5 knots! Any faster and the boat pounds like hell which is why I slowed downed a little last night. Just taking it slow and easy even if we do feel like a horse that smells the barn. More tomorrow. Lynn
