Island Head Creek to Port Clinton Once in a Blue Moon

Approaching Port Clinton

This morning the winds are below 10 knots at Island Head Creek.  They will be higher outside and there will still be swell that's whipped up over the past few days.  We've been here five days, it's a good day to leave.

As expected it's a bumpy ride, wind from the southeast, in our face, and we're motoring.  It could always be worse so there's no complaining.

The calmness of the Port Clinton anchorage is a welcome relief this afternoon.  I've made an easy lunch of fried rice which we enjoy sitting in the sun in the cockpit.  We can hear the turtles breathing on the surface close by.

Tonight we watch the blue moon rise over the mangroves in a calm, peaceful anchorage.  A blue moon happens when two full moons occur in one month.  It's positively blissful.
