It has been gray, drizzle, windy (did I say windy) and cold for days.  For two hours yesterday we saw a glimmer of sun in St Augustine from about 3:30 until sunset, then the clouds and wind rolled in again with a vengeance.

Some one wrote or said our posts have been down and depressing.  Uhhh yeah.  That’s what we’ve expereinced lately.  The highlights were hamburgers at Cruisers Grill in St Augustine.  Oh and some chocolate cookies from Bon Ami in the same town.  Its damp, its sort of cold due to the dampness. I think I’ll eviscerate the next person that tells me that “this weather is so unusual”!  I don’t want unusual, I want sun and some radiant heat please.  We may see the sun on Wednesday.  The wind just won’t quit.  We’re thinking of dashing to Bahamas ASAP as we don’t want to get the boys to Florida and then wait 10 days for a weather window in South Florida.  THe crossing is ass right now, no way we get in the gulf stream in these conditions.

    Thought of you guys yesterday when I had the radio on and heard, “Bye, Bye, Miss American Pie.” Now, THAT’s depressing. HAHA! Forward in your sailing adventure! Be safe.

    • Jo,
      Too funny. I think of you each time I hear that wonderful song too–how could I not. No one does “American Pie” in karaoke like you do. Best Birthday present ever!!! Too bad that was before cell-phones or I would have a record of it for you-tube. Would have gone viral like gagnam (sp) style. Thanks for checking in, we are “livin’ the dream” and freezing our bits off…..
      H&P

    The weather is so unusual out here too .. It’s raining in Seattle if you can believe it. Depressing for you maybe, but full-up entertaining to read about so even if everything thing else is going down the toilet, keep writing ..
