My straw hat just went airborne. Hit the beach and started rolling. I darted after it. Pinning it to the sand a few hundred feet away. Forty mile per hour gusts. Highs in the 80′s. For four days. It’s times like this I wish I was in a sailboat, heading north.
Any hopes of progressing down river all but stopped Saturday. Only now, after thunderstorms swept through late last evening, can we move again.
Normally wind storms would mean sandy days inside our nylon shelters, but as luck would have it two old friends from school in Maine moved to the southeastern corner of the natural state earlier this year. They opened their new home to us as a place to wait out the storms. It’s been wonderful to reconnect with them in such a different place.
Back to the river.
