I really did start the day with the best of intentions, the clear skies overnight had left a white dusting of frost, but with some warm winter clothes on, it promised to be a nice day to get some work done on Greta, our yawl, while she is ashore in the yard.
And of course, when your boat is ashore, why would you bother checking on tide times?
A couple of nights before I was too busy drinking and not thinking, when we had gone out to admire the spectacular full moon. A big spring tide normally occurs a couple of days after full moon and so it was that the boat yard was completely flooded.
