So, it's been a week since the 'incident'.

Our plans to head up to the North Channel: kiboshed!

It actually worked out for the best - as most things do.

My wife's boss's wife had to go in for some tests yesterday. Although my wife's boss told my wife that she should still take her holidays as planned, my wife felt that she should cover the office so that her boss could take care of his stuff.

So she worked yesterday and today and we'll be heading out tomorrow, to putter around the East side of the Bay for two weeks.

I got my sail repaired (Thanks Ken! - K-Force Sails in Collingwood). I replaced the seat for my dinghy and my dinghy motor is up and running. I dodged the bullet with that one - only required a couple of oil changes: no other issues.

This feels weird though because, even though I never admit it, I usually have a plan or agenda for my trips. This time we're literally going where the wind takes us.

My 'Alpha' side is getting nervous....

See you in a couple of weeks.

Visualize the vastness of the oceans; the infinity of the heavens; the fickleness of the wind; the artistry of the craft and the frailty of the sailor. The oneness that may be achieved through the harmony of these things may lead one to enlightenment. - Flying Welshman
