Well today at least shows the promise of spring and moving ahead. The last several weeks have been somewhat challenging to say the least. The storm on Monday night was a real rip snorter and we saw gusts of 50 knots here in Lunenburg. That’s almost the equivalent of the wind you feel on a 100-series highway if your window is down — nothing to be sneezed at. The heavy cold rain was no treat either.
April 1 has come and gone and another season aboard Bluenose II has begun. I always enjoy first day as the new crew are about to embark on the adventure that will hopefully change their lives. Returning deckhands are always chatty, talking about their winter adventures and their excitement to be back aboard and seeing old shipmates is like a bubbling brook in the spring thaw.
