The sailing bug takes another bite
I'd finally gotten the household chores done and it was on to the boat project. After cutting out a couple of intricate side panels, my lovely wife and I had lunch.
While sipping our coffee on the deck, we looked out over the lake. A cold front was moving in and the wind was picking up. With no debate, we decided we must take our sailboat out. That's all there was to it.
Sailing on a small mountain lake with a storm moving in is . . . lively. One minute the air is almost dead, then a 35 knot gust comes out of nowhere. There are constant changes in wind speed and direction. The lake isn't all that big, so at hull speed one quickly runs out of water.
It's really great sailing practice. Before long my lovely wife and I were working like a well oiled machine. By the time we called it quits, the little lake was covered in white caps.
There's no sense living on a lake, with a boat in the water, if one isn't prepared to drop everything and go sailing.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
