Talking The sun is here! Cabin Fever Season is over! :)

I know, I know, most of you are where there be coconuts and you see the sun a lot

But after another long Dutch winter of rain, cold, lots of wind and short days in a closed off, dark, wet boat:

I CAN SEE THE SUN!!! The sun is shining on my face!! It's nice & warm!

The first nice day with actual sunshine in months. First day with the hatches open and actual daylight inside! No extra shirt and sweater, just ... sun!

It's amazing what that will do for a gals spirit

Here's to hoping the sun will reach all my fellow liveaboards suffering from cabin fever soon

Re: The sun is here! Cabin Fever Season is over! :)

Yay for us!!

The temp jumped by 10C here ... I've had a big old grin on my face all day, haha!

Even did a little happy dance on the dock earlier. Girl from the next boat joined in.
Guess we're all very, very happy here

Thanks!
Hope so!
It's been raining in the UK forever. I've got the reverse of a leaky bucket in the cockpit, every time I look at it there's more water in it than before!
Enough, once the cheap winter marina deals run out at the end of the month Spain it is!

Re: The sun is here! Cabin Fever Season is over! :)

I understand stand Lizzy, while it has been a mild winter for us this year. The sun is getting high enough that it can throw some heat now. We are close to double digits, oh so close! It does trigger a big smile to feel that warmth on my face.
Only another 6 weeks or so until the ice is off the water:-)

Yup, this winter wasn't really cold, but it sure was wet.
Which is worse, methinks, then cold and dry, especially on a little plastic boat

We just hit the double digits (in C) - hang in there for those final couple of weeks!

Re: The sun is here! Cabin Fever Season is over! :)

Lizzy Belle I completely understand. We've had a tough winter here too in Southern California. Last week it rained for part of a day, mostly at night, and there was one day it almost didn't break 70 degrees Fahrenheit. But it spring now and things are looking up. No more cabin fever for a while.

Our Dutch winter sucked this year, but yours was a lot worse, from what I heard.

Extreme amounts of self control were utilized to NOT take this comment down the dark alley...

Re: The sun is here! Cabin Fever Season is over! :)

On the other side of the pond (Ottawa), we too are having fantastic weather. I rode my motorcycle to work yesterday for the first time since December. I got some funny looks with snow banks over my head, but I wasn't the only bike on the road.
