Did you get any of that wild Thunderstorm up there last night?.
(I think that's what a nuclear bomb would look like)
Did we get it?...we were in it!
It was a wonderful clear day so we decided to go out to Thormanby Island in the evening. It was calm but by the time we got over (10 min.) it was blowing pretty good. We tucked in a somewhat protected bay and anchored. We went ashore and watched it kick up to probably 30 knots, whitecaps, 3-4' waves, thunder & lightning...really wild. Not knowing if it was going to continue or end, we piled in our boats (20 & 26') and made for home. The waves were coming over our bow and spray blowing right over us. We arrived at our dock where is was a 10 knot wind and relative calm!
The sea can be an unpredictable thing!
