I was glad to be anchored and comfy when the front passed through yesterday, as the south winds were howling for a while, and I know what that would have looked like out at sea. I did some routine maintenance, had a nice meal, then a very early bedtime and long sleep. I awoke early this morning and raised the anchor, then an easy run back out of the bay with the ebbing tide, over the bar and back out into the South Atlantic ocean. I am now headed almost due south in light air and fairly smooth seas, and expect a pretty easy day. It looks like the sun might break through again, so maybe I won’t lose my Caribbean tan just yet.
