Melissa & Dave - Adventures at Sea

Dave chooses wisely

In the morning there was another boat in the bay.  Odd for them to have arrived after dark.  Dave went to talk to them and learned they had been at an anchorage he had rejected as too exposed.  At 5:30am they were awakened having had their mooring buoy break loose.  They had landed on a reef.  They got lose quickly and made their way to our bay in the pre-dawn hours.  As usual Dave's instincts abut which anchorages to choose in stormy weather proved correct.  As the winds were forecast to continue we decided to stay put.  We are down to just enough food for dinner tonight and breakfast in the morning.  We don't even have enough for lunch tomorrow after we get back to port!
