Just to keep things interesting, Thursday was also the day our new mattresses for the kids' beds arrived from Portland Boat Mattress! We had a little fun getting them from the marina office to the boat, and unpacking cardboard boxes in 15-20 knots of breeze was exciting, but when it was all said and done, the kids were VERY happy about their new, cozy mattresses! And they were a perfect fit!

The winds got pretty sporty Thursday evening and I took a solid hit to the head from the reefer hatch when a 25-30 knots gust hit us while I was scrounging up dinner. I hadn't thought to secure it in port! Our little guy also got nauseous while trying to read a book before bed. All part of the experience!

Power outages in the area wreaked havoc on the school routine Friday and tripped our breakers a few times. The kids ventured out for a walk out on the frozen beach, but after a few minutes were ready to get in from the wind. We decided to cancel our weekend ski plans to keep an eye on the boat and reduce our risk of frostbite! Temps are forecast to get above freezing next week so we have hopes of a pump-out in our near future!
