Art & Sue ~ Trying to duck the storm that is a brewin'
We moved teh boat yesterday to get protection from the gale that is nearly upon us only to have to move it again early this morning. We awoke at 6:45 to hear our neighbor yelling to us - with no wind and the tide and current turning each boat a different way - we were too close to other boats. Now the wind has come up - we are in our new anchorage in a canal and behind an island looking for maximum rotection. As I type the boat is being heeled by the wind, Don is talking to other boats who foolishly have come into the anchorage and are too close, 2 trawlers hooked together on one anchor. NOT a good idea with a gale. Don and our neighbor already jumped on board a dragging boat - the wife was alone - the husband was a tthe boat show. Most of us have decided not to leave our boats today due to the weather.
This adventure has only the rarest of dull moments - since we hit Miami there hasn't been one either on land or on the water !
