An unsettling sight ...

Yesterday afternoon was too beautiful to work, so I went up to the lake and took my boat out single-handed.

Had a nice sail, and I was tacking back to the marina, working out my strategy for approaching and tying up to the pier.

I glanced up at my wind indicator, and there were three turkey vultures circling way above my masthead.

Better than sharks circling the boat, I guess.

As you were,

Kurt

I'm very jealous - yesterday morning I had frost on my roof.

Glad to hear you skipped work and did something of importance.
