Yes I am, but who has a map in the car anymore? We were all out of town in a rental, no less.

The latest iphone version has an inherent app that you just ask for directions like you were asking a local. And it replies like that local jumped in the car and verbally pointed out each turn. Its really amazing.

I thought all phones had that. I have an IPad and Droid phone. I much prefer the voice droid phone over the I Pad, You can ask it about chinese restaurants and it gives a list then voice directions. same with a post office or offcie building.

I though all phones had this capability now.

Certainly, not all. Try to ask a flip phone. You need a "smart" phone. That's how we got started on this.

I think you have us confused...please dont ever do that again!

That first picture is taken from a stream looking out to Wortn Creek, on the "outside". It an adventure wading up it, all kinds of fun criters and wildlife inlcuding a Bald Eagles nest (s), turltles, snakes, etc...

Re: A family day... what do sailors do?

FWIW (not to divert the thread)

The kids life jackets in my pic are a great product. Very hard to find anything better. The downside is that you have to order them from the UK. Well worth it. There is a toddler version that guarantees to flip a child face up even while wearing soaked diapers (nappies as they say in the UK). Well tested and verified through LIFEBOATS association.

Yes, the small boat is where the action is for little kids. My son and daughter love to sail, but they learned to sail in the dinghy.
Here's my daughter about 8, sailing a friend, in light air.

Re: A family day... what do sailors do?

Spelled wrong or typo? UM For the record...Worton Creek

I am definitely the better looking one, but he forgot to mention I am also the better sailor! Bawahahahahaha

I am sure it is confusing for many, similar screen names, we both keep our boats on the same creek, and soon we may be at the same marina, or should I say yacht club?

Cheers,
Shawn
