... home again, 'cross the sea, stormy waters

In the morning, my morning wash-up gets interrupted - we're out on water. But, a local brings some in a tank, and we fill up every bottle we have in the boat. The weather forecast is again strong Jugo and rain. It is raining and we can hear thunder in the distance. After breakfast we set sails to the last stage of this trip. My intention was to stay downstairs, since Alfred said not all of us would be needed outside today, but I get that familiar dizzy feeling in my head, and before it moves on to my belly I better put on my outdoor clothes and go out. Outside it's raining, visibility is bad and all in all it's a pretty crappy day. The wind is perfect for sailing and the "Chianti" moves fast across the wavy sea. In the distance we see the "Lucky", we will meet again in Zadar tonight.
It's so good to sit in the warm boat with steaming coffee and tea and cakes, dry and warm! We had planned to take a city sightseeing tour, but noone wants to go out in this weather.
And I just have to make a comment on the skipper: he's wonderful! At not any single moment I felt scared or uncertain, there wasn't a question he didn't answer nor did he ever make me feel stupid about asking. Thank you, Alfred!
Around midnight I leave, happy to have taken this chance of 'jumping over my own shadow' and do something I never knew I was able to. I've learned new things, met new friends and most of all "... I fought with a stranger and met myself ...".
And ... got a great recipe for Hefezopf :)
