Yesterday I left Milford Haven and had a nice 2 hour downwind sail here just in time for the winds to really kick up and make a lot of white caps outside the marina. Checking in to the usa was easy as usual. It took about 5 minutes on my smart phone using a new app called CBP ROAM. I didn't have to leave my boat, or go to the customs office and the official on the other side of the app, video conferenced me and could see me but I couldn't see him.
Then I walked the 2.4 miles to the grocery store and gave my legs a scare. Having been living on the boat for the past few weeks, my exercise level has dropped to the lowest level ever. I am starting to develop a tummy and it has got to go!
Weather is not cooperating and going west from here back over to Menomonie against the prevailing wind is going to be difficult to say the least. Tomorrow I plan on heading to Government Bay but i may be relying on my engine more than I would want. In the meantime I plan on taking a 2 hour cruise tonight on an old wooden boat berthed at the end of my dock.
