Decided to catch up on some chores and stay put. Gave away some chain, stored the rest away better to balance boat. Loaded on another 8 gallons of water. Hand washed my clothes. Took two more showers. Washed my windows. Had a walk around. Registered my PLB (personal locator beacon), and stored it in my life vest.   

  Looked at possible routes and stops for the next several days. If the winds in the ditch are going to be fickle like yesterday I might just have to drop down to the gulf and make some bigger hops to get to better sailing areas. There isn’t much along this part of the ICW, probably a few days before food and water can be found again.
