Well what a start to an adventure ! We had storms on day one then set out
from Galveston south south east– the Gulf was all churned up and messy so
we had a bouncy day but all went well. We sailed all night finally in the
morning of Day 3 we realized we had a big problem – Our chief of Security
still had not gone potty !! We have a green “pottie patch “ which I had
followed him on Sunday and rubbed it in his wee thinking that would do
the trick. We had it up in the cockpit coz it was too rough to go out on
deck – well he really likes it – rolled on it, slept on it and even took
his meals on it – but there was no way he would put it to its proper use.
It was decided that we needed to head for the nearest land so I could take
Rags for a walk near a tree and he would be OK. We turned north and
headed for Louisiana.
