Need to be: Sailing!

When the husband decides that a Sunday afternoon is a perfect day to take a break from building his canoe, whatever previous plans were made, they get chucked out the window. Because sailing is one of the things that I like doing best.

She claimed it was Her Boat. And that she was the one who got to drive.

Except she couldn’t see where she was going. Nor did she try. She just sat with her head down, and steered with ne’er a thought as to direction or course.

Shoulda’ sailed over, right?

    • We’ve been having some sthtiy weather here too. Not cold , but cool, definetly not hot. Can’t go to the pool. It was 81 here today, but windy as hell.

  2. Hi! I just found my way here from Zach Aboard. It seems like your family has an exciting lifestyle and have had many adventures! I have a friend who lives on a small island and seems to have kind of a similar lifestyle.

    Love the sailing pics! It always seemed like my daughter took the tiller from me at the most inopportune times….
