Snow Day

By | Living Aboard | No Comments

snowDay Under the weather in more ways than one.  The winter cold has me in bed reading and putting chores off as long as possible.   Enjoying hot vegetable soup, hot tea and toast.  There isn’t much hope for an early spring, but I’m not quite ready to embrace winter wholeheartedly.

Icy January with Wind

By | Living Aboard, Sailing | No Comments



Brisk winds from the North West blow the water out into the bay, resulting in unusually low tides. It’s called a “blow out” and this is one of the worst.  Never have I had my boat completely out of the water, sitting on it’s keel.  Luckily the lines and the pilings are keeping it upright enough to sleep and move about inside..  Electric heaters are keeping the interior livable when the temps drop down to 10 degrees F (-10F with the wind chill factored in).  Perfect weather for staying in and doing some computer work. Hmm.  Also have to photograph some watercolors for an  up coming exhibition at the state house.
