What is normally high tide here seems to be low tide these past couple of days. The high tides have been washing over the lower fixed docks and causing the floating docks to push the ramps from the higher fixed docks into the air. It also floods the two roads in and out of the marina enough that there are times they are impassible.
|Hmm...the ramp seems a bit ineffective at this tide level|
Yesterday we decided we should get off the boat and go do something to take our minds off the bad weather. We invited our friends from The Retirement Project to come along and we ended up going to see a movie. Having a home theater when we lived on land, it has been an extremely long time since I've been to a theater. They were playing The Martian in 3D. Theaters seem a bit more comfortable than I recall, but overall I think I still prefer watching movies in the comfort of my own home. But we had a nice time and the movie was pretty good (neither of us knew much about it, so we didn't really know what to expect).
Today, when the internet cooperates (internet always seems to be an issue at marinas), I think I'll be doing some research on solar. Needing a new mattress in our berth, I'll be looking into that as well. So keeping busy while the wind and rain blow.
