Weather: Windy, rain showers
We’re grateful to be in a safe harbor, tied to the dock, with the convenience walking Elsie Mae on the beach without requiring a skiff. Still, this storm has been rather long and we’re anxious to get going. We went out to dinner with Tom again; other than that we lounged around the boat, did some chores and walked Elsie several times.
The forecast is for calmer weather on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but it is conspicuously silent on tomorrow’s weather. It’s starting to look like another day waiting for Georgia Strait to calm down. One thing is for sure: Watching the weather chart we see that the jet stream has moved south and the weather patterns are are starting to look more like a normal fall. Our long streak of spectacular September weather has probably come to an end.
