Next stop Comox

We had a really crazy night last night in Boho Bay. The wind was howling at up to 27 knots from the SE. We were expecting wind from the NW ( from the weather report on the radio), so consequently we took all night. Our anchorage had three other boats, they must all have been thinking the same thing. But between the wind and Charles (he was going from one window to another because he didn't like the wind either) Jerry and I got very little sleep. Our anchor held just fine though, and in the morning it was relatively calm. We had breakfast and got under way. The picture above is us dressed very warmly (and safely) in our new survival suits. If we happen to fall overboard with this suit on, we will float (it is like a PFD) and they are suppose to keep you relatively warm for up to two hours.
We are sailing across Georgia Straight right now, heading for Comox. Tonight's wind is suppose to come from the NW, so we'll see. Charles is sleeping. :-)

hello I hope this will be posted on your blog. I enjoy reading everything. Not only that, I never had a boat so for me it is also getting some education. Please keep it up Kathy. Prince Charles looks great. Is a lot handsomer then the one in England.
take care.

Hmmm! 2nd night out and you didn't get much sleep!! I'm sure you hope that's not the first of a lot more nights like that. What else does Prince Charles do besides 'sleep'? Nice photo of you two. Vinc and Nohel came by this afternoon for a visit. Like always..I gave them a few things to do for me. He put the hammock up, moved the furniture and flower pots back onto the deck and took a container of my freshly made veggie soup over to Joan & Neil. I called David and sang Happy Birthday for him. BTW what is a Chandlery?

Stay warm, dry and safe!
Love,
Mom

I love that photo of you two -- Kathy, you look so happy and beautiful (Jerry too - only he looks handsome) ;-]

I agree with Rita -- Prince Charles of the Splendid Mane is so much more handsome than the one in England. heheh
