Well it seems that way as we have put the cockpit
tent up, a low raced across the top of Tonga yesterday, the barometer plummeted
, we had quite a few of our Panama group over for a few beers in the
afternoon and we put it up so they would not get wet , visitors included ,
"Trenelly" Jason,Fiona, and Dillon, " Summer Wine" Mike, Aiona,Ross, and Finn, "
Sebright" Dave,Joe and Beth , all tucked up in the cockpit along with
Rob,Ruth,Lyn and myself , as beer is reasonable quite a few were sunk, along
with ice cream for the kids , made by me , its instant stuff which is
made up frozen then dished up with peaches ...
The rain started at about 19:30 and the wind
picked up 35 knts with torrential rain, we were strung out on our mooring buoy
and were swinging near another boat, we put the engine on and stood by as the
gust veered the boat pt to stb quite violently , it lasted for about three
hrs and we had enough rain to fill our tanks a few times over ... the lightning
was also quite spectacular , all our PC , radios and portable GPS were put in
the oven as usual , signed no cooking !
This morning it was as flat as a pancake ,
sun shining all ready for our daughter arrival later on today at the Paradise
hotel , those familiar with Rick Mayal and Adrian Edminson " Bottom"
series , and there film Hotel Paridiso can start to draw comparisons
Its a fuel and gas run this morning so I'm of
to the for an explosive morning in a mini bus !
A Sopping wet crew ...
