It looks like it’s officially winter in the Keys. What that means is some stretches with cooler temperatures. Not cold…just more comfortable than the extreme heat we have in the summer. We can actually sleep with the hatches closed. What it also means is wind…lots of wind.
Could The Timing Be Any Worse?
The last few weeks have been pretty calm. We’ve been able to get out on the paddleboard a few days a week. Things even seemed to be picking up at work a little. That all came to an end today.
This morning some very strong winds arrived, that are predicted to last for about a week. Of course along with the wind we have a pretty nice chop in the bay right now.
Conditions are so bad that the SUP is probably going to be sitting on deck for the next week, until the wind dies down. When I took Sparky in for his walk this morning, I was barely able to row us back to the boat.
So Much For Work This Week
With this weather, it’s going to be much too rough to get out on the water. That means no trips at work.
I also had a few guests arriving on the boat this week. I’m may have to cancel their reservations. Considering how hard it was to row just me and Sparky back to the boat, there’s no way I could row us back with another person in the dinghy.
Ready For A Change
I’m really dying to move on now, and I really want to be doing something that’s not so seasonal, and not so dependent on the weather. Unfortunately, we can’t go anywhere until I dig myself out of this hole I got myself into, and until we get some repairs done on the boat.
Please leave a comment or share this post! We need to make Sparky more famous, so the website starts making some more money, so we can be free.
There Is A Bright Side
Since we’re probably not going to get any trips this week, my boss is going to have me run the shop for a day or two. That way they get to take a few days off. And they said Sparky can come with me to work on those days. He’ll be happy, not being left alone on the boat for a change.
