Sailing with the wife and kids...

Went on four-hour sail yesterday with my wife, two daughters, and the dog... Had a wonderful time on Port Royal Sound and the Atlantic... took a few videos that capture what it's like for our small family on a small boat. Might be intersting for a few of you with young'nes...

Hog, that was great.
Loved the grapes in the lense shot.
What is it about grapes and sailing, I think they are a staple for a lot of us.

My favorite was the daughter under the blankey.

Bub, TJK,
Ain't they cute. Bet they look a lot like Courtney when she was a little thing.

Nothing like sailing with the family. But let's be honest... sailing alone can be... peaceful...

Looks like a great day, Hog.. nice looking family you've got, and they seemed to really enjoy the sail.

Sometimes peaceful can be boring

I can't wait until my wife is as relaxed with seering the boat as yours looked.

Hog, I do like sailing alone for the peacefulness of it. But when I am out alone, I find myself wishing for the giggles and laughter that only little girls can bring aboard. There are times at night if I close my eyes, I can hear my girls giggling on my boat. Its an old mans dream but it is mine. Your a lucky man!

I hear ya, cap'n. How's that little girl of yours? I've got her locked in my brain. Hearing you talk about her makes me ache for you. She's all sweetness, your heart's delight...
