Thar' She Blows

Peaceful...

Beautiful...

Calm.
And then...

 "The Weather Event of the Season" was scheduled to hit Sunday night.  
Okay then, let's find shelter and be quick about it. 
 We started calling for dockage reservations and were getting the old "No-Room-At-the-Inn" message everywhere we turned.  Plan B.... 

Did we have a Plan B?  

What could be an alternative to swinging wildly on a hook or two, waiting out a week-long blow?  Our guardian angel was working on our behalf, and a space opened up for us at Compass Cay.  
Hurrah!  We're saved.  




Soaked by the spray of the breakers...

We took turns holding the little one lest he be blown away in the Gale force winds.


I love the sea oats blowing in the beach dunes.


The winds are lessening now, but Steadfast is growing fond of the dock.  Nelson is partial to the beach runs and Captain and Crew are decidedly attached to the pot luck dinners and Sundowners with the gang  at Compass Cay.  We are in no hurry to move on.

How's the weather in your neck of the woods?
One hears hints of spring are making their appearance here and there.
