      Ahh, good old bitter cold weather with high winds…perfect cruise conditions! Seems like a January constant.
      Legacy Harbour dock hands helped six boats to their berths on Tuesday, with two more boats arriving on Wednesday. The cruise leaders, Mike and Brenda Stewart, he with a shoulder replacement and she with a knee replacement less than a week away, left their boat at home and took a room in the Legacy Marina Hotel and Suites for the three days of the cruise. It took the Jettons, their two guests and two hotel employees to unload the Stewart’s car’s load into the room!
      The hotel room was most fortuitous as it served the group as respite from the brutal weather conditions. “Heavy” hors d’oeuvres, provided by the cruising ladies, were eagerly downed by the bone-chilled cruisers, who then escaped to the hotel room for cocktails and tales.
      Wednesday morning showed no warming trend so everyone gathered in the Stewart’s room for scrambled eggs, sausage, muffins, bagels, fruit and orange and tomato juices prepared by the cruise leaders, with early rising sausage chef Pete Oiderma. Couples Scavenger Hunt III was explained after breakfast. The couples had until 11:30 AM to return with their collection of items off their boat. Again, ingenuity and creativity were encouraged. The participants returned and each submission was documented and “inventive” items were agreed on or rejected by the group. Score sheets were left behind for Mike and Brenda to tally scores and determine First, Second and Last places to be announced with prizes to be awarded at 4:30 PM at happy hour.
      At 4:30 the hotel room again filled with boaters. After some time for everyone to warm up a bit, it was time for contest results. First place was Moonlighter, Lee and Brenda Jetton and guests. Second place was Semper Paratus, John and Patti Queen. Last place was claimed by Spoiled Yacht’n, Armond and Pam Sikes. Prizes were in large bags and a blind pick conducted according to placing. Deals were struck on trades afterwards and everyone was happy.
      Thursday. Oh well, just repeat Wednesday without the game! The weather relented some, so there were a couple of hours later in the day that negated the need for layered clothing. It was ideal weather for lunch and exploration downtown.
      It was back to the Stewart’s for cocktails before dinner at Pincher’s. Cruisers were joined by car attendees, some of whom had also joined the group for breakfast/cocktail activities. After some cancellations, we ended up with 26 attendees. We had a long table in a side room shared with a yacht club. Yes, it was loud!
      On Friday everyone left by boat or car and peace returned to Legacy Harbour.
