Let's just say The Admiral and I found the day a bit more challenging and educational than we anticipate .

It wasn't really "bad," per se. It just had a couple rough spots. Hmmm... Better or worse than my best day at work? That's tough. You see: I used to really, really enjoy my job. So a good day at work was a good day indeed. On reflection: I'd say it was as good as my best day at work during the days when I really enjoyed my job. These days: No contest. It was definitely better than my best day at work .

Five years of sailing, five pairs of glasses, 2 cell phones, 1 kayak paddle and a boat hook
Chesapeake Bay: 9 Chuckles the clown: 0

GPS has time better than any watch I can afford to lose, nerd straps are mandatory on all be-spectacled crew members now. Now if I can just figure out how to tie down a boat hook, cell phones and such...

Where's the duct tape!!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
