Challenge #03184-H275: Twinkle Twinkle

A young individual is learning to sail and decided to sneak off to practice their lessons in the harbor alone. They are blown out to sea due to a sudden squall and now must remember how to navigate to get back to the harbor and safety. -- Anon Guest

Could'a, Would'a, Should'a was going to kill her. She could'a stayed home. She should'a listened to Old Terry, who could predict the weather by his knees. If she would'a taken along a compass, she wouldn't be in this much trouble.

Lost in the middle of the trackless sea in a small sloop with one sail. No supplies, only the endless confidence of youth.

Bad news

My computer is dying.

It’s limping along for about twenty minutes or so before it crashes and has to cool down.

Which means I have just enough time to write in my blog before it’s out of commission again.
