We are currently in a small harbour near Kiel and are firmly aground.
We moored in this harbour two days ago to sit out a low pressure system with associated strong winds. We had a relaxing day yesterday visiting a WW2 U-boat nearby, and when the strong winds arrived last night as forecast we were snug and smug inside the harbour.
While there are no significant tides in the Baltic, the water level does change as a result of the wind. When we moored there was more than a foot of water below us, but when we awoke this morning the sea had dropped more than 2 feet. The gale has blown all the water over to another part of the Baltic.
We have deployed some extra lines to try and stop Lizzie falling over, and hopefully the sea will reappear soon. We are definitely stuck here until it does.
