Slave to the weather forecast - which suggests better wind and sea conditions than Sunday. I have vowed to be more careful and prudent this year - I am not supposed to be in a hurry. I am at the marina and intend to do very little on Sunday - maybe fix my reefing lines and go a cycle ride - hooray for folding bikes.
It is strange to be on board and to be in the process of leaving a lot of my life behind. There was a time when I would have found it exhilarating - age brings prudence - and fear perhaps. I would rather be exhilarated.
