Good morning from Lake Diefenbaker Saskatchewan

And hello Cruising Dad--how is that carpet working out?

We have been in the water just six weeks--too many delays with shipping from lovely lake texoma up here to the middle of the Canadian Prairies..

while the season for us will be short this year-- pulling out in mid/late Sept--we have experienced unusual no wind days with a 30 to 30 knt day about once a week. Thunderstorms usually only happen in June and we have been getting them almost nightly--makes for great veiwing form undeneath the dodger ( really big screen TV, one channel only). For the first time in about twenty+ years a boat, two over from us, was hit by lightning-- this is pretty unusual as we are in a deep couley. Lake Diefenbaker Yacht Club

We have also had more tornado warnings and touch downs than I have ever heard in the 23 years I have been in the province.. we are a bit far north to be in Tornado alley

really enjoying the new to us boat and slowly learning all the systems--we changed up from a 1980 catalina 30 to a 2002 beneteau CC--so it is like going from a 1960 VW bug to at least a late model toyota. Still learning how to use the in mast main, getting the furling right would appear to be critical- more reason to go to the boat as often as possible.!

Fair winds all-- and many thanks to the Moderators and regular contributors-- makes for great lunch time reading while chained to my desk...
for now
