Quick update - We are at Atlantic Yacht Basin at Great Bridge, Virginia, waiting for the weather to brighten up a bit before going on further north into Chesapeake Bay. A string of low pressure systems are in control all along the east coast and the forecasts are pretty much a mash up of higher winds, waves and rain. We are hesitant to move further north today, even just up to Hampton Roads.
Which brings me to my next point.
This will be my last post for a while. I find myself being discontented with things and I don't want what I have to say to end up sounding like a bunch of whining. Perhaps it would be best if I just stayed silent until I have more pleasant things to say. I feel particularly guilty about any bitching and moaning that I am doing in light of what all the boaters are going through trying to get up into the Erie Canal and beyond. We especially feel for our friends Rick and Margi of Journey. In comparison to their situation I have nothing to complain about. We're just waiting for weather to improve. They're waiting for much more to happen.
He who rides the sea of the Nile must have sails woven of patience.
