Hunkered Down

The thing about being on a boat is that you are out in the elements. There is no denying how little you can really control in your life. That the very notion of control is an illusion.

So we stayed on top of the severe weather warnings, and hunkered down as three magnificent storms passed through. Such wonderful towering dark clouds. Lots of rain. Heavy downbursts of wind. Quarter inch hail. Makes one feel alive on the planet.
