Weather is a funny thing.
I spoke with my son yesterday to find out that all the schools were sending the children home due to some impending storms. The entire southeastern coast from the looks of the radar were having tornado and/or hurricane warnings. Our friends were in Saint Augustine, Florida and then we have our family members in Palm Coast and they were all under tornado warnings. Elaine let us know later in the day that all they had was a rain storm which was great news. Michael text me to let me know that all the family was home together awaiting whatever was headed their way.
Meanwhile in Marsh Harbor we await our fate. The winds have been a steady mid 20 knots and the clouds would come and go. I took the opportunity to make lasagna for our trip and was able to get four meals put away. We actually stopped to watch a television program in the middle of the day to break the boredom of not being able to get off the boat. We each took a short nap but that proved to be difficult as the winds were kicking and boats were anchoring and then dragging. Captains were hollering at each other and then others were trying to be helpful in suggesting safe anchorage areas. Marsh Harbor is a great place to be but it is a busy place with ferry boats, charter boats and late arrivals coming and going jockeying around boats that are anchored in the channel. In a storm most tend to forget the channel and just look for a good hole to drop their anchor......such was the case with the catamaran in front of us. With three children aboard I am sure he just wanted to get the anchor down and be "safe", yet he is right in the channel and he has to contend with the boats passing close to his stern or bow and rocking his world.
We still enjoy an appy hour as we watch the boats around us that "sail at anchor". Our night will be short and we will prepare for the rain to start in the early morning hours.
