Nice report. The Weather Gods can really screw you up when you have only a week to fish (or eight days?). Charles Ritz said he never went on a trip of less than three weeks, ceding that one week would be great, one mediocre and one bad. Wonder who was minding the hotel during his forays? Nice work if you can get it.
I generally, even though fully retarded, can get away only for a week at most. "Should have been here last week." "You're a little early, maybe by next week." "Yeah, too bad about the rain, cyclone, tsunami, drone strike, ravenous bears..."
Hope to get on the Dean in one of these future years. Hopefully on a good week.
