That's Lake St. Stupid for you, I guess.

Lessee... We left the slip at 13:30 or so, I guess? No problem. Got back into the slip about 18;00 or so? I would've known if the winds had been high enough to be an issue, because we've found out the hard way that the wind really tends to blow Abracadabra's bow around. Nope: It was easy out, easy in.

Then again: Depending on wind direction, we're pretty sheltered up there at the north end of Venetian .
