We’re ready but Mother Nature is not!

After a weekend of down pours, today was the day to leave the mooring, but MN had other plans for us. Blowing W20 with gusts to 45… It would have been a wet motor to Cutty Hunk… We have nothing but time! Captain is using the extra time to do a few more chores/errands. I brought enough food to last us a year and somehow found places to stow it, freezer is packed to the brim and discovered the bilge holds 2 cases of wine! Even found room for flowers to brighten our day! Have also labeled every communication electrical cable and itemized every storage compartment on board…. I am ready!!
Tomorrow looks promising… But so did today!

    Hello my friends! I was up at 4:00 am and was thinking about you both, wondering if you would leave. Looked pretty gusty to me. Like you said you have nothing by time! I saw an SUV like yours Adrien and I realized the magnitude of what you two are doing. You are doing what most people can only dream of. Your friends at the Woodlands will live vicariously through you for this next year and my what a trip we will have! Love to you both and “happy sailing” tomorrow, I hope. Love Linda

    Don’t rush, enjoy each day, relax and take plenty of photos. It has been five years since we returned from cruising experience and a week never passes without one of us reflecting on our experience to one another.
