March 4, 2011 Layover Day in Silva Bay

Today the weather sucked and it blew so hard and rained so hard that we had no inclination to go anywhere or even get off the boat!  We stayed by the wood stove all day.  For the record (for those who wonder what it’s like to have a REAL stove on the boat)–it’s after 11 in the afternoon and I just though about putting on a pair of pants, but I probably won’t.  It’s sleeting outside and I’ve been going up on deck in bare feet and underwear to check the anchor and top up the deck iron.  The cold actually feels refreshing after luxuriating in the dry, evenly-warmed boat!  There is absolutely no substitute for a wood stove on this chilly Pacific Northwest day.
