Inspired by a statement in my last post - "we're in an age when life doesn't seem to exist unless you photograph it" - I decided to keep a weather diary. This implies taking at least one outdoor photograph per day, recording basic weather information and writing a brief thought for the day.
The excitement is almost unbearable! I know. Titillating or not, I had to do it to get it out of my system. After 4 days or so, it still seems like a good idea, better than collecting stamps - I think.
Besides, sailing and weather are like hats and heads. Show me a sailor (as in, sailboat owner) who doesn't have at least a casual interest in weather and I'll show you a person who owns a hat but has no head.
Drove to the marina, ran the engine in reverse, checked the fluids, dried the bilges, talked to sailors, saw a Walker Bay sailing dinghy a friend bought. That was my afternoon in a nutshell, slow living in sunny winter weather.
