Re: Chapter 1: Our first cruise
There is absolutely nothing better than the elation that comes with "I can really do this " after some time spent sailing, and the funny thing is it happens again and again. I went through it with my first two boats and am about to experience it Thursday with sailing my new boat for the first time. The real bonus in it all is having your daughter along and her enjoying it, my 18 year old son was helping me prep the boat yesterday and told me "dad, I want to learn to solo sail this year and maybe you could help me find a boat of my own." All I could do was sit for a minute and then say it would be my honor.
"hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic..."
