And I didn't see any yarn or any knitting of any sort while we were gone - but look what I found on a side street in St Thomas:
We had big winds - the boat charter people, who were terrific BTW, said the winds were more typical of what they call "Christmas winds" than late winter wind. knot meter typically hung around 20-22 knots (a knot is 1.15 mph) and we did see 30 knots (about 35 mph) while we were sailing. The boat performed beautifully.
And we saw
1. a whale - it breached, then blew, then flipped it's fluke - just off our stern rail
2. a porpoise - just one, but it jumped up and looked in our port window while we were at anchorage and I was down looking out that same window - startled me I can tell you. Then it hung around to play in the anchorage and entertain lots of folks on different boats.
3. a sea turtle swimming along beside our boat
oops, I'm getting kicked off the web at Panera, where I'm online.
We returned to an ice storm and no internet service at home.
