Cold front coming

01 February 2021 | Stuart
Sally | Bouncy
One month of 2021 already in the books, even in trying times the days fly by. We are dong well. Both of us have had the first of the Pfizer vaccine and are scheduled for our second towards the end of this month.

The winter cold fronts are happening very frequently. They bring strong clocking winds. Today we have a steady 20 knots with gusts to 30 from the NW. That's the worst direction for the mooring field as the wind screams down the North branch of the river straight into the bay. Fortunately Light Reach takes it well but we do bounce around! We had to go ashore this morning, the captain was out of his favorite adult beverage and we needed water. We kicked the front tank last night. With winds this high predicted for a couple of days we bit the bullet and decided to haul out the water since we were going in.

We've been using contactless pick up at the package store which works really well. Afterward we stopped at the bagel shop's drive thru for breakfast.

The ride back to the mothership was boisterous and wet! It is supposed to get down into the 40's tonight, we aren't acclimated to that anymore. We'll hunker down with the cabin heater, put on our woolies, and I'm making a lentil stew for dinner. Stay warm and well everyone !
