I cruised along enjoying the breeze and didn't notice the dark clouds filling the cove from the south until I was nearly half way around my egg shaped looped course. I watched over my shoulder as the dark clouds hugged the far ridge line and quickly over took me. Luckily my route took me back across the cove and back along the opposite ridge line. I made it home in time to watch the dark clouds begin to spill across the cove and tumble over the mountains near my house. S'ghetti girl and I stood on the porch and watched as the lightening lit the darkening skies knowing I had raced and beaten the storm.
