Member Sail in the Fog

The weather was a little gray but belied the gloom that awaited Ernestina as she slipped outside the hurricane barrier. Although our first hour after escaping New Bedford harbor was quite pleasant, sailing under all four lowers and with an impending frontal passage on the horizon, the ship was soon engulfed in a thick and eerie fog. Our hair and clothing dampened but not our spirits, No! Thanks to Tom Goux and his Travelling Minstrel Show. Tom and his cast of choral champions again treated us to song after song, performing a capella as well as with accompaniment by recorder, guitar and concertina. Despite the poor visibility, several other vessels managed to track us down us by homing in on our Pied Piper’s piping.
