A day of rain, gale warnings, and pottering. Stuck fast in Arklow until the gales subside.

On the positive side the Maritime Museum has been thoroughly examined (small but interesting - extolling the historical importance of Arklow in shipping and ship-building.); a purse found and returned to its owner; a strip of mahogany found and purchased (thanks to our helpful Marina manager); a higher fiddle screwed to the chart-table (no more charts on the floor on port tack thanks to Martyn's expert joinery); an internet cafe found and every conceivable weather forecast scrutinised for better news; and another pint of Guinness dutifully consumed.

Contemplating changing the blog to "holidays in Arklow", but maybe we will escape before autumn.
