First sail of the season (photos)

The admiral and I made it out the last two weeks with some absolutely gorgeous weather. We were hoping to spot some whales, this is the time of year the Grays are migrating through and we have Humpback through the summer. We did have many Dall porpoise playing about the boat. Temps were a bit cool, we woke up to frost on the boat one morning, but layers help.





More photos here and here.

Great pictures! That's one advantage of salt water over fresh...it won't ice over as easily.

Thanks for the stunning photo. It gave me a rush of nostalgia for my home country of Scotland where sailing with mountains coming down to the sea is also possible. Here on the Chesapeake, the sailing is excellent, but the coastal scenery is definitely very flat!

Best wishes for a great sailing season.......

Leith (rhymes with teeth) is the port of the City of Edinburgh in Scotland. A Leither is someone who comes from that area.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky - I left my shoes and socks there, I wonder if they're dry?
