Where's the albatross?

Tempest, wind, hail, and storm. We have had the lot! A small consolation this morning is that it's warm enough to stand on the balcony in my nightie! Last night trying to get to the watering hole of choice we had to cross an open deck by the pool. I fell over almost immediately. Getting upright again I clung to one of the columns, hair all over the place matching my formal evening clothes. We are having fun! Here is a quote that seems appropriate. Listen stranger A wind and tempest strong For days and weeks it played us freaks Like chaff we drove along. The breezes blew , the white foam flew The furrow followed free We were the first that ever burst Into that silent sea.

  1. You certainly seem to be experiencing a year's worth of weather in a few weeks.
    Not so much a cruise, more a sort of trial by tempest.
    I hope things calm down for you soon.
