So far today has been an interesting one. Kirk fixed the mast yeah for him being so smart. The weather does not look any better for tomorrow than it did today or yesterday and a front is supposed to come through on Tuesday that is supposed to be a humdinger so we may be staying here for a few more days. Being tied to the sea wall you meet lots of people and we have been invited for drinks by Ron who is from Baltimore at 4:30. I guess they start early down here. Not much else to write about. A lot of this experience is the people you meet.

Set out around 9 am this morning to head to Lucanya. The seas grew bigger and the winds stronger the further we got away from west end. Kirk decided we needed to turn around after there were breakers about 8 – 10 feet. He did not want to try for the inlet where we were headed with 10 foot breakers behind us so we turned around. After a bit, he thought maybe we should try again and so we turned back around again. And the seas built steadily along with the wind. So we headed back to port. It was even more windy in here than when we left in the am. We were pinned to the fuel dock by the wind and had a rough time moving the boat. At any rate we are back in port safe and sound. Met the couple in a cat further up the sea wall (he helped us get the boat moved) and had drinks and dinner with them. Yeah ate the last casserole and turned off the freezer. Kirk tells me that he found a decent weather report, at least on that matched the conditions we ran into today and that we are staying here another day. Weather conditions are supposed to be same. Advisories all over the place.

Sad day as kevin and Theresa leave. Winds are still honking. We went for a long walk around the development and checked out the ocean After kevin and Theresa left we worked on getting the boat ready to head out. Kirk has been working on a piece of the mast track for the main sail. Big job
We had a play day today. Walked on the beach early with kirk. Swam in the pool with kevin. Watched the lobster man with Theresa and got three lobsters for 15 dollars. The lobster man is a story in himself. Goofed off. Read book, we all needed a day off and thanksgiving was the perfect day for it. Unfortunately, the weather changed and the wind was blowing like stink and the water that was beautiful yesterday was all churned up, so definitely not a beach day. We still had fun.
