Moving into new gaff tomorrow, and my other half gets here tomorrow as well, so all very exciting. Hurricane Bertha
(click on picture for latest track) continues to move very slowly at about 6mph towards the northwest just less than 300 miles from Bermuda. The island feels very still and hot t
oday, a sign I am told of something happening, but that something should pass 160 miles away in the Atlantic Ocean on Saturday night. Bermuda's east end and south shore will however suffer some residual rain and wind. Good for my yellowing grass though of course.
The weekend will be very quiet, there's not a lot to do in my new place as our shipping doesn't arrive until the following Sunday, so a bit of camping is necessary next week with an air bed hosting any conjugal rights!
All of our stuff in Chicago was successfully packed and now disappears somewhere until it leaves New Jersey next Friday, to arrive in Bermuda on the Sunday. Given the choice I would rather have a place to live first with the shipping coming later, as opposed to the shipping arriving with nowhere to put it. So camping it is and the ferry to work on Monday morning. Enjoy your weekends and if you're going to Ebbsfleet, remember it's only a friendly.
