05 June 2012 | 100 miles to the Farallons!
Not much blogging over the last few days. We had a tough time with some pretty serious weather. Probably 16-18 foot seas, gale force winds. A broaching wave knocked Scott over, hitting his rear on the winch. So, he now has a permanent tattoo "Lewmar" (the manufacturer of the winch) right on his bottom. That's what he gets for cavorting with wenches. Should give him a friendly reminder of the trip.
Just sitting here eating the last double chocolate rice crispy treat. I can't believe those guys fell for the "lost it" line. They were delicious.
No movie night for the past TWO nights due to weather, but it looks like we get to pick one more night. You'd think this would be easy, but, as usual, there is a fight for whose movie night it is tonight. I picked three nights ago. It should be my movie night. Just cuz those guys didn't bother to watch a movie while 18 foot waves are crashing over the side of the boat is no excuse, right? Sean declared "no movie night" on his night and that he "passed" on his movie night. Scott didn't say anything, so he claims that he didn't give up his movie night. I think Sean set the precedent, no?
Anyway, we watched "Back to the Future" on my last movie night. I wanted to watch "Back to the Future 2" just so we get the continuity. When I asked Sean, he said he wanted to watch that too! And so did Scott! So the whole argument about whose movie night it is seems to be purely academic... maybe it's just sporting or something. Their last chance to think they might be in control. But, the readers of the blog all know the truth!
Barring anything bizarre happening, we will be at the marina tomorrow night. We might be fighting a current into the gate which may delay us a bit more, but it is likely to be at night. We will get phone and data services tomorrow sometime, not sure exactly when.
