Evanston: a better view
We are back from a long weekend visiting Carol’s family in North Carolina. Her sister lives on a lovely property complete with dock and boat house on a lake near Charlotte and her parents nearby.
Above was our view when we woke Sunday morning. That is only a cove. The entire lake stretches for miles and is big enough for GANNET, if the little sloop did not have oceanic ambition.
GANNET apparently became bored hanging out on her mooring waiting for me to return and went to England. I only found out when Martin checked the tracking page recently and emailed me.
From James in the snowy Adirondacks comes a link to a live webcam in Opua. The view is north. GANNET is out of sight to the right. If it's dark, it is night time in New Zealand.
This photo was taken by Jason. I thank him for letting me use it.
I received an email from Mike, the young man who is checking GANNET once a month while I’m gone, who states that she is fine.
In making my daily check of wind off Cape Horn I turned the world too far and chanced upon this image of the winds in the Southern Ocean all the way around the world.
Being away part of December, Carol decided to have a GANNET size Christmas tree this year.
