Beautiful December sail...

Took the afternoon off and headed out with my daughters. Wind was out of the WSW at 10-15 kts, the temp a nice balmy 77F. That's right! December 19, 2008, and it's 77F! You guys north of the Mason-
Dixon got that?

Anyway, here are a couple of good videos. My youngest daughter Georgie is one of the most reserved seven-year-olds you'll ever meet, but she unleashes her inner-crazy kid in the second. It's funny as all get-out to me...

Hog—

I used to think you were a nice piggy...but you really SUCK. We've got about a foot of snow falling at the moment.

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.

Hey, we had a day just like that. Sunny, 15-20K breeze, 57 frigging degrees colder though. My kid and his wife just passed by you yesterday on their way south on the ICW, glad they are getting some good weather. They said it's been pretty foggy in the am though.

Plan on doing the same tomorrow. Should only be around 60 but that'll be ok. After all it is almost Christmas.
