Tropical Storm Don

News of an approaching storm really tends to freak people out on the Gulf Coast.  I was in Corpus Christi when I heard rumors of a potential hurricane heading straight to Port Aransas – our next destination.  I was definitely concerned, as Hurricanes and sailboats do not mix well, but I figured we would just play it safe.  We would still sail to Port Aransas (before the storm arrived) and dock at Island Moorings Marina which was one of the safest marinas in the area.  We would double up on the ropes, and if things got too bad, we would sleep on land somewhere.
