The good news and the bad news

We picked the wrong week for a sailing vacation. Hans ended up having to work off of his computer more than someone on vacation should have to. We had rain, rain, rain, and then more rain! One of our nights at anchor ended up being a bit dicey when we had massive thunder storms and a lot of gusting winds. But our solid little catamaran dug in her hooks and held on tight all night long.
She's a good girl.

The bad news: we didn't get to sail very much this week.
The good news: it didn't rain all week, and we did get out for a couple of days.

The bad news: I dropped my sunglasses in the toilet.
The good news: it happened before I used it!

The bad news: I lost my little circular plastic cutting board.
The good news: I found it.
The bad news: it was stuck to the bottom of a frying pan and caught on fire when I decided to reheat some leftovers.
The good news: we were able to put out the fire out before I burned the boat down!

This was a pretty spot to drop anchor and Hans grilled steaks for us.
A jelly fish performed a lovely floor (water?) show for us and I did take a short video of it but with my connection it takes a bit of time to download.
I do think it's interesting and I'll post it later.
Here I am in the salon checking on emails and blogs etc...which I only did a couple of times this week.
Of course next weeks weather looks like sunny skies and warm temperatures but we won't be here to enjoy them.
Maybe next time.

LOL about the cutting mat! You should be using self-healing mats anyway! Good excuse to buy a new one. ;-) (Better than buying a new boat.)

Actually, it was my plastic cutting board for cooking that I ruined. I do use a self healing mat to cut out my fabric but it's been cut on so much that its healing properties are wearing out.

It sounds like you had quite an interesting vacation. I had a cutting board catch on fire a few years ago. As it burned it melted. I put it out with salt. What a mess it made.

It sounds like you turned what could have been considered a bad vacation into a good one.
