My lovely wife and I trailer our sailboat out to a bigger lake. We were joined by my 8 year old granddaughter and an old friend of mine I've known all my life. Winds were light but we did sail sail about halfway across.
This is what the lake looked like just before becoming totally calm. This place is known for wind and I've never seen it completely die in the middle of the day.
My crew decided to go overboard for a swim.
While the sailing wasn't that great, the company was. Besides, we really didn't have to be anywhere. It was sunny, the company was good, and we had good food and drink. Sometimes life isn't about being anywhere or doing anything.
The little electric motor pushed us most of the way back. We did get a brief bit of decent sailing in at the end, but it was just a teaser for a half mile or so. In the end we motored to the boat launch. Once the boat was loaded on the trailer -that's when the wind came back. Men plan, the gods laugh.
All in all, not a bad day. My buddy is off to a gig in Hawaii and I probably won't see him until spring. My granddaughter is heading back to school. One has to enjoy the moments when one can.
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.
