This was the second time Maikel and I holed up in Hadley Harbor, just off Cape Cod, in bad weather. After sitting out a downpour the day before, we attempted to set sail, and were turned back by shockingly big waves and near gale-force gusts. Drenched in seawater, we returned to Hadley, which was looking pretty cozy by that point. I sketched this scene first though a porthole, staying warm and dry, then braved the elements with my paints. By the time I was wrapping up the wind was blowing some of the clouds away.
