Better weather?

Friday was another day still in Plymouth with strong winds through most of the day. With prolonged bad weather it is tempting to think it will never get better; but surely some kind of vaguely summery weather must come eventually. The day was brightened up by visits from our friends Marie Christine who knows little about boats, and Dave Patuck who knows a great deal about them and owns several himself. With Dave we admired the finer points of the various stormbound gaffers and did some retail therapy in the yacht chandlers. Helping other people spend their money is one of life's pleasures. 
 In the evening the rain came and the wind dropped which makes us hopeful for tomorrow though the forecast remains quite bad.
