We're in Cox's Cove now, alongside the dock. Kali and Magnus are about to take Saxon Blue into Goose Arm, a sheltered part of the fjord to sit out the remains of the hurricane. We're expecting winds of around 50 knots so a proper gale but nothing to be too worried about. Andrea and I are going to Corner Brook for a couple of days to stay in a hotel and have a Newfoundland mini-break. I feel very strange to be getting off the boat. The guys are more than capable of keeping her safe but it feels disloyal to Saxon Blue. Andrea says I can't be disloyal to a fibreglass object but a boat is more than that. Still, there's no point just bobbing around for 3 days when we can go and explore so there it is.
