Rough Seas and Raining 21 April 1630

Winthrop Journal notes that on 21 Apr 1630 the fleet was dealing with rain and rough seas.

“Wednesday, 21 April 1630

“Thick, rainy weather: much wind at the S.W. Our Captain, over night, had invited his consorts to have dined with him this day, but it was such foul weather as they could not come aboard us.”

Winthrop, John; Hosmer, James Kendall.; ; accessed 21 April 2013; “Original Narratives of Early American History, Winthrop’s Journal 1630-1639 Vol I page 30.”

Sadly I can not correctly cite where I found the image. I believe it was from a “Wiki” page. If anyone can help give credit to the proper people, please e-mail me.
