We had a good evening with Stu, Steph (Matador), Chris, Sue Wilf, Sid (Yindee Plus) and an American couple Mike and Marguerite from Ithaka who have been cruising for 14 years and are now heading home to the Chesapeake bay. We learnt a lot about the area and were all invited to visit them when we are there, Marguerite said we could do our laundry at her place and get a lift to the shops - which are often a long way from the places boats can access, I have a feeling that they may regret the offer when they get invaded by bags of laundry!
We all set off early and had a great sail most of the way, that was until the thunder and lightening started, we were right in the middle of it and got very very wet but though the thunder and lightening crashed around us all turned out well and everything still works. We also saw dolphins for the first time in ages as we neared the anchorage and some came in for a swim around the boats after we had anchored which was a treat. There is still a lightening show going on in the distance and the forecast is for more all week – what fun!
