“To every season turn” Ecclesiastes 3

The winter solstice found Elizabeth Jean shaking loose her mooring lines and heading into the Atlantic Ocean.  A Polar Vortex had dominated North America during our annual Seattle visit.  Our friends’ warm welcome home more than made up for the cold weather, although Eric slept with his watch cap on the first few nights in the Northwest.  Hilton Head was balmy as we stepped off our return flight, but the wind soon switched to from the north and the cold prodded us to push south.  For two nights we motored.  The waning moon, rising after midnight, helped brighten our late night watches.  By noon on December 23, we were off Fort Pierce Inlet in Central Florida and shedding layers quickly.  We are stowing those layers and once again applying sunscreen.  We wish you all love and peace this season.
