Fierce winds battered the coast, trees blew down and there were power outages.
We stayed safe albeit a wee bit wet from the driving rain.
Today we slipped out of Otter Bay Marina and headed down to Poets Cove Resort.
The seas were lumpy and the winds moderate.
Last nights sunset....
"red sky at night sailors delight...red sky in morning sailor take warning."
Otter Bay have nesting boxes for the Purple Martin birds.
They must have already flown south as we did not see any while we were there.
We enjoyed our few days at this small Marina.
Last night there was a wedding aboard a sailboat and there were dozens of people attending.
The bride was taken out the boat in a dingy and she wore a lovely long white gown.
Chiffon, off the shoulder, and her hair was up and she had a tiara of pearls.
The rain held off for their nuptials and after their vows the heavens opened up and poured rain.
I did some cleaning today as the boat was looking a wee bit unkempt.
Living in a small space means stowing everything when it's not in use.
I have a bad habit of kicking off my flip flops and leaving them in the middle of the floor where I trip on them later! You'd think I would be more careful.
Tonight we are going to dine on a big crunchy salad, a BBQ steak,
Rose French wine and some boiled new potatoes with butter salt, pepper and mint.
Simple, easy and so satisfying.
I have saved my favourite magazine and plan on reading it cover to cover after I finish my current novel.
The anticipation and the lovely covers are part of the joy this magazine brings me every month.
Do you have a particular magazine that you enjoy?
My daily regime on board our boat is pretty close to the one I do at home.
I don't use or bring Fresh Sugar face masks as they are far too bulky.
All these fit into my small make up bag.
Sunscreen is a must!
My basket is full and the two books I have already read were donated to the previous two Marina libraries for other Mariners to borrow.
I made this appetizer tray up earlier in the week. Small chunks of cheeses, crackers, pickled asparagus, and wine salami. These take up very little room in our tiny galley fridge and add a bit of luxury in the evening.
I need t get some exercise that is not going to stress my knee...so laps are on!
Well I must close for now as the swimming pool awaits...
