We are probably going to be here much longer than we planned. It is raining. Storms are forecast, with a drop in the wind on Saturday, but then there will be persistent rain, which probably means poor visibility. Our last experience of sailing in the rain was pretty grim, so we have extended our stay. Between showers we took our washing to the laundry and sat on a bench basking in the warmth from the dryers to read as the darks and lights spun around. The machines seemed expensive, but included powder and conditioner and took 50 cent coins, which John accumulates. Given the weather we availed ourselves of a tumble dryer. The clothes came out beautifully laundered and smooth and the rain held off till we were back on board with our bags.
