A dark and stormy night...

Anchor Watch Poem: Aug. 21/22
Elderhostel Intergenerational aboard Adventuress
San Juan Islands

It was a dark and stormy night
Waves lapped up against the hull
And wind howling night
Waves shook the boat
Like thunder from below
And rain covered up the red compass light’s glow

But when it did pass and the ship found herself made fast
It was calming with the fish splashing
And as the dawn broke through the dark
All the crew found themselves singing sweetly as meadowlarks

Only six hours till we say farewell
Adios, dear friends, it’s been swell
So remember the wind in the sails
The beach walks and the tidepool snails
The good food coming from the galley
All the things learned
That we cannot tally

Happy trails to you
My family and new friends
Till we meet, I hope, again.
