Second mate pretty well sums up things below. Just want to add our thanks to
PeterB and sister Anne for their responses on the picture question. They
both agreed it was Katsushika Hokusai. Good to know that some are reading
our scribblings.

Well, it doesn't seem like five minutes since I was writing yesterday and
its hard to think of something to tell you about what's happened since then.
Time in La-la land just passes by. The wind has picked up as predicted and
as we sit here pretty sheltered in the marina its gusting at 25 knots. At
sea it is probably 30 and we're definitely better off where we are. The tide
comes in and goes out, although cloudy today, the temperature is still a
very comfortable 26 degrees and as we sit around just in shorts, I promise
we are thinking about you and the snow, but not with envy!

Today is a day for quietly reading (me), fiddling around with boaty things
(Peter) and some sail repairs for Albert II (Sam). Later we might walk
across to Costa, or TGI's but maybe we won't (just like being at home
really - oh except the snow that is, oops, sorry). We are looking hard at
weather forecasts and considering options to sail, but it still looks like
Thursday at the earliest, which means at this rate I might have finished War
and Peace. Oh well, Costa it is then!
