Rolling and bouncing isn't fun. I remember one anchorage where the teapot jumped out of the sink and sloshed tea from one end of the galley to the other. Certainly not the weather for watercolour. Now I understand why you love pastels so much, although having them jumping around after you've so painstakingly sorted them might be a bit annoying too. Our dog didn't mind rough weather though. If it was rough he was allowed to lay on the for'ard bunk. His definition of rough, mind you, was when it was flat calm and we got the wash from a passing motor launch! :2funny:

Oh yes, we do get those as well. I'll never understand the mindset of why some boaters feel the need to rip through an anchorage at 100mph. Sheer stupidity and dangerous to boot!  :knuppel2:

 :thankyou:  for the Christmas wishes Val and I wish you, Lloyd and all your family, a wonderful Christmas too and may the New Year be all you could wish for and more.


It is so interesting reading the discussions you and Linley have with regard to your sailing.  Just reading it makes my legs go weak and reminds me of a flight I had some time ago from Canada to South Africa when without any warning, the plane dropped thousands of feet, people were screaming, things flying around the cabin and some people sustained injuries. Fortunately, I never travel without my seat belt on so I was O.K. but it is something that will live with me forever.  Scary stuff.

Thank you Patricia  :flowers:

Just a couple of weeks ago we received news of another cruising friend that had his son visiting. They had gone to one of the bars and he didn't have his light with him. The dinghy was hit by one of the big launches while on his way back to the boat. His son survived, but our friend died a short time later. Very sad. I always make sure we have our handheld searchlight in the dinghy even in the day, just in case we end up coming back late.

Wow, Val, how sad to hear about your friend dying in the boat accident. You can never be too careful and good to hear that you always take a searchlight with you, for you just never know when you are going to need it. It is better to be safe than sorry, that's for sure.

Oh, Val, how tragic.

Good to know that you are safety conscious.

Oh Val, how sad about your friend.
Good to hear you are safety conscious, as Patricia and Mea say.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, Guy will be well missed by those that knew him.

I am a real stickler for safety... just ask Lloyd!  ::)     ;D

Oh Val - what a sad post to read about your friend. Life is so unpredictable - cherish the times when the most important thing you can do is sort through your pastels and listen to the wind blow. Wishing you and Lloyd a wonderful and safe Christmas!!!
Cheers,
Sharon

Thank you Sharon. If it wasn't for it being so windy and all this rain I'd just go ashore. But I fear by the time I got there I'd be sitting in a pool of kaleidoscopic water!  :2funny:

Just imagine if you took a dip in that water - what colorful skin you'd have!
