One of the things we enjoy is listening to music. It is interesting that we don't listen to it that much, maybr an hour or two a day. The sound of the water going past Diamond Girl is very plesant and calming. For those of you that are over 40, what song is todays title from? If you said Credance Clearwater you are right. As you know we had a wonderful day sailing yesterday, maybe a little to nice. After tthe radio net about 10 pm it started to cloud up. Nelda and I have a tradition now of having a cold drink after the net while we wach the sun go down. FYI is is Zuco which is like super strong Mexican Cool-Aid. It is the only cold drink we have all day and we drink allot of room temperature water. Back to last night, so as we are watching the sunset we see rather large clould forming around us. We have seen this many times before and it was nothing to b concerned about, or so we thought. We left the Growler up for the night and about 11 it started to rain, and I mean rain! T odays pic is a shot of what we see on the radar when it is really raining hard. I mean torrents of rain hard. Well lets just say our radar looked this way for the next 3 hours! The wind came up and there was enough lighting in the distance to really get your heart beating. It was a very challangeing night and neither Nelda or myself slept more than an hour. Aboiut 1:30 the rain and wind stopped as quickly as it started and we didn't have another squall all night which was fine by us. The good thing is we are moving out of the squall zone. The Marquesas rarely have squalls. Today we have been wiped out. We both have slept most of the day. We haven't eaten anything, just slept. Fortunately the weather is back to being nice so we just set the jib and sailed on using the Hydrovane. We are looking forward to a nice quite night.
