His name is BERT and it was supposed to be a tropical storm and pass over BONAIRE!!!! Murphy,s law!....Who could imagine that in the island which supposed to be hurricane free in the middle of JUNE tropical storm could come?
We sailed south to hide from the storms....but it appears its safer there up than here.. Well at least for these days...because in reality, this what happened few days ago is really very rare.
After 4 tiring days of sailing south from BVI we arrived to Bonaire. .It was fast, but windy, squally and very wet trip. WInds from the beam with the seas crashing directly to the side of the boat and inside the cockpit....But the worst was not that. Because of the waves we had to close all the hatches inside, so during the day it was authentic sauna down in.... Tropics are tropicks, and what can we do:)
Poor Epo and Zika! They suffered that heat and waves too and were very brave going to toilet with such a movement! Luckily some flying fishes were coming to visit us at nights, so at least our cats could have fresh fish for dinner each night.
