Silver linings?

It had been a long, brutal day, heading bow on into driving southwest winds, spray, then thunderheads ahead and astern. So we duck into a sheltered harbor and tied up, soaked, cold, miserable and questioning our reasoning on many levels. No sooner than we tied up the sky began to clear… everywhere but directly above us. It was like something from a cartoon; there was a single black cloud hovering over Annabel Lee,  pouring down, and Frank remarked that it pretty much summed up the way things were going at that point.  As we plodded up to the marina office to pay for the dock this lovely craft caught my eye and I snapped a quick picture. Around us I noticed several people stopping and staring back from where we’d just come and Frank said, “I wonder if the boat’s sinking.”  We turn to see this…

And suddenly everything didn’t seem so bad.

  1. NICE!!! Know EXACTLY what you mean by having that ONE cloud not move off your vessel and everything else just blue as can be.

  2. I want that sailboat. A lot.
