Some Memories of Sailing 2009

Since we are almost in the depths of winter here in northern Ontario, I was enjoying looking through some of the photos from this past sailing season and I thought I would share a couple. This is only my third season sailing and boat ownership. I can now sail solo and solo with three young childred. We are having a great time around Killarney on Georgian Bay. I hope the photo links work.

Thank you. The pictures of your family are heartwarming. I still remember cruising with my father and brothers as a child. The best thing you can give your children is time. You are doing the right thing.

Wanderingstar, A very good message at Christmas. I don't think they remember "stuff" as much as fun times with mom and dad. I know that my childhood memories hold a few things that stand out like a new bike, but otherwise it's all about the good times shared.

You are really creating some wonderful memories for those boys. Somewhere down the road, they'll look back fondly on these memories and it will warm them to remember the good times with their father and siblings.

Thanks for sharing.

Good job dad!

"Go Simple...Go Large"

Relationships are everything to me..everything else in life are just tools to enhance them.


The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
