He had spotted the tugboat rumbling. Their way it's getting a little rough out there teague and said as she put it over to her spot. You're back early. The sailboat said the waves are growing bigger and bigger and the wind is blowing stronger and stronger. My captain decided. We should wait in the harbor until the storm passes and then see if anyone needs help. Teagan replied her. Captain was busy. Making sure teagan was safe in her slip. All the boats were swaying now the waves and the winds moved them. The boats went up and down up and down as the waves rolled in the boats. Wade side to side side to side as the win whistled. Bi weekly smiled and laughed. He loved it. The wave runner usually sought out these types of waves. When he was playing today he found them in his harbor slip. Manny bumped into the soft fenders on the dock as the waves and winds stirred the waters. He looked around and noticed the others were bumping into their fenders as well. Every time of boat bounced off a fender. There was a squeak. Sandy added the clanging sound of the lines on her mast to the squeaks from the fenders sue. The once peaceful harbor was singing with the sounds of mass. Clinking fenders squeaking and lines humming in the wind Then the wind and waves slowed and the harbor grew quiet once more. The boast felt steady in their slips with the waves now gently rocking back and forth back and forth. Boats began to feel a bit tired. Manny and the little motorboat was snuggled up safe in his slip feeling cozy and warm in his covers.
