JULY 18, 2007
The wind was supposed to switch to the Northeast in the next couple of days (which would have made it difficult to travel up Buzzards Bay) so we decided to make a run for the Bay despite fog and a predicted possiblity of thunder storms.
We were only about an hour out when we started to hear some serious thunder in the distance so we beat feet back to Fishers Island. Thunder storms on the water are our "bogerts" and we avoid them whenever possible. It is no fun sitting out in the open water under a 50 foot metal pole in the middle of a lightening storm.
