Waiting for the Weather

Malua is shipshape and like Bristol. All things are in their place and
all lines and halyards are now ready to use but as always the weather
decided we had to wait.
There was a very deep depression off the coast of Virginia which moved
eastwards towards New York and then on to New England. It dumped a lot
of snow on that part of the world. While this storm was forming it must
have caused the sea to build and upset the Gulf stream flowing north so
I thought it was prudent to wait 24 hours for the sea state to calm
before we set off south on the first cruise of the season.
We are off on Monday south to Georgetown Bahamas.
A magical moment on Malua
