Dartmouth - Pirates Alive and Well

Fri 15 May 2009 14:15

50:22.84 003:35.50   Despite the wind, rain and the mooring charges - who said Dick Turpin was dead?  the River Dart and Dartmouth is a very beautiful place.  We are currently on a mooring buoy at Dittisham sheltering from the forecast SW 5-7 increasing Gale 8.  So we will bve here for a couple of days.
We had a smooth passage here from Weymouth with flat calm sea and fog!   There was just enough sunlight to have supper in the cockpit - practising for the Med - in full oilies!  We will be here for a couple of days so can catch up on book reading and tidying up the boat.  Sadly I will not be doing the laundry as the force 8 wind may rob me of too many pairs of knickers (am on a budget!).
Graham has been playing with the generator - it does work when it has decent fuel...   He is keen to fish and threatens to get the BBQ out if he catches something.   No fear of that then.    Love to all.  Gilly B
