It was still raining in the morning so we tried to sleep in as best we could with the wind and rain pounding on the boat. The rain stopped for a bit so I decided to put my crocs on and waded ankle deep through the parking lot to the marina restrooms. While inside the rain started again with a vengeance. I was wearing my rain jacket but everything below that was soaked by the time I reached the boat. Needless to say we are stuck in Dog River for a few days because of this storm that spans several days. We keep watching the wind and wave condition on the bay and it would not be a comfortable ride. Doing it in the rain on top of that just doesn’t seem advisable.
Enterprise had brought the car to the women yesterday an hour late so a deal was worked out where they could have the car for one day at half price or for two days for the price of one. They elected to keep the car for two days so we had wheels.
After spending all morning on the boat doing chores and reading while watching the wind and rain continue we all decided a field trip was in order. By the time we had finished this field trip we had gone to the movie “Intern”, stopped at a CVS (for the Allopurinol), a Rite Aid (for Flu and pneumonia shots) , a Walmart, a Costco and had dinner at a “Five Guys”. It was nice to spend some time off of the rocking boat and out of the rain and wind. When we returned the wind had died down some and the tide was out so the rental car could be driven through the parking lot and near the boat making grocery schlepping much easier than it otherwise would have been.
