Still in Cape May

19 October 2009
The weather is finally moderating after gale force winds, torrential rains and frigid temperatures. The back to back NorEaster's hit as predicted and things have been fairly grim in the weather department. The only consolation is that Utsch's Marina has provided us with a haven of warmth and safety and at a reasonable cost. I cannot imagine being stuck out in the tenuous anchorage through such severe weather conditions. Our plug in heater has been working overtime and has managed to keep us fairly warm - thank goodness for "shore power". We have walked into town a couple of times; once to just see the town and once to hit the grocery store. Amazingly enough, time seems to have flown by and we certainly have not been bored. The sun shone today for the first time since we got here so we were able to attend to some of the boat chores that needed doing, mainly to flush and fill the water tanks. We thought we would need to give Osprey a good hose down but after all the rain we have had that is no longer necessary. So now we are ready to jump off to Norfolk - heading out tomorrow for the 22 hour trip. The forecast looks good - Westerly winds which will hopefully be strong enough to sail. Temps will be climbing through the week - up into the 70's by Thursday - now that's more like it!
