17 Jan The STORM
Update from Leah: These pictures were sent to me today by some amazing people in Port Stanley. Bert is in full weather gear and battling the storm. He is tired from lack of sleep, hungry from the inability to get below deck for nourishment and cold, so very cold. When it settles down, I’m sure he will write something insightful and eloquent , but right now this is what he’s facing. Hour after hour until the storm passes. The only advice I gave him at his departure was “ JUST STAY ON THE BOAT” Today that is more of a prayer than anything.
I am so thankful for the people in Port Stanley that can see Bert in their harbour and are standing by to help if it gets to that point. It’s such a relief to know he is somewhat within reach IF need be. For now, Bert says he can handle it so there’s that. Let’s all pray the storm passes sooner vs later.
