So Hard to Say Goodbye
I had hoped to be on my way by Friday at the latest. The wind gods, however, conspired to turn that into an impossibility. The wind just won’t let up enough for me to get my ground tackle back on board safely by hand. By hand I mean just that: yarding the stuff off the bottom manually. The windlass was decommissioned for sea.
The weather north and east of the Falklands is anything but inviting so being pinned in the harbour isn’t so bad. I am anxious to get going east but not at the price the wind and sea are asking offshore just now
Meantime, I am fixing, inspecting, fretting, and fussing over all manner of things big and small. The latest being the Iridium Go external satellite antenna. It has decided it likes Stanley too and wants to stay.
