STORM!

We are sitting in a 35-40 kt southeast gale this morning. I took a video looking out our door into the harbour .... you can see it here.

We actually 'rescued' a sailboat that was anchored out on the other side of the Rock Salt restaurant yesterday. The anchor had dragged so the boat was only about 50' from shore, and today's gale was already predicted. We didn't want this boat to end up on the rocks ... we know the woman who owns it, and know that she's away right now, so Michael went out in our inflatable, and towed it into our dock. Check this out...



I'm off to knit at the Rock Salt - it should be fun today, combining knitting and storm-watching! (Oh, and I'll have another shawl to show you tomorrow....)

I do so love watching a good storm from the comfort of a secure spot...especially with knitting in hand.

It was nice to watch your video and hear your voice. One always has to imagine the voice of their blogging friends.
