We are anchored outside the mooring field in Great Harbor, Jost van Dyk. The harbor isn’t quite full, but there is a nice schooner anchored just east of us. Today we head over to the US.
Here’s the view:
Anna and I are in the cockpit watching the pelicans dive bomb the water for their breakfast. We just had the following conversation:
Anna: Oh, wow. In the winter if they dove they would hit the ice and it would hurt.
Dad: It is winter now.
A: Really? Wait a minute?!? It can’t be winter.
D: Yes, it’s December already.
A: Oh, well winter doesn’t start until January.
D: Anna, you know what the weather is like in January?
A: No, what?
D: Just like it is now.
A: Oh! Really? Wow!
Then, she just asked Tracy: “mom, is it really winter now?” “Is it snowing in Maryland?”
