Spring Has Sprung
Tomorrow will be our last day in Falmouth Marina, we’ve survived our unplanned Winter afloat without too many problems and now it’s time to move on.
Last night we had a bit of a leaving party with some of the friends we’ve made while we’ve been here, for early April we’ve been blessed with some calm sunny and relatively warm weather, that said we’ve still had ice on deck early on and the evenings get chilly pretty quick. As you can see from the photos below our leaving do started off on deck but migrated to the pod as the temperature dropped. It was pretty cozy in there!
Gails Mom has been visiting these last few days and we actually took her out sailing the other day, the first time ‘Gleda’ has left her berth since 15th October. There was little wind and a sloppy sea in the Bay but it was nice to be out again. Gail will be heading up country for a few weeks on Thursday so I’ll be moving out on my own and trying to get used to being properly afloat again. Monetary constraints mean I’ll be looking for out of the way anchorages and creeks to dry out in and somewhere to get the hulls scrubbed off and re-antifouled. Another chapter is about to start, I’ll let you know how it goes.
