 Nice Birthday 
Lat:18.3182° Lon:-64.6177°  Wind: E 17.5 kt | Temp:82° | 

So its my birthday and I have to say Im doing exactly what I'd hoped for this b'day.Woke up jumped off and swam into blue salt,showered on the stern.Qik cup of tea, and time to leave Gorda Sound.Got the anchor up,always a trick solo,put up Jib only and sailed down Sir Francis Drake channel at 7knts.Destination Peter Is,White Bay.Made it by lunch only to find it was not as advertised.Big chop and the wind swirled from all directions.Moved on south to Norman Is,rounded the westerly tip and came into a harbor called 'The Bight'Full of moorings so no choice but to hook one which I did on the second try.2 min latter I hear a Bang,the mooring Ball broke its chain and Force is free and moving.Quickly started the engines and dodged the fleet,powered to another mooring and hooked up.Its blowing 20 and not much confidence these mooring but,going to fix a celebratory drink,check out shore and hope the boat stays.Beef strog for dinner and calling it a great day! Love Bill
